Peta Bradley grew up surrounded by wool and is now a development officer with MERINOSELECT, having recently graduated from the University of New England with a Bachelor of Rural Science. She works with sheep breeders on a daily basis combining the technical aspects of genetics with on-farm practices. “Within my job I am helping farmers improve how they record and produce sheep meat and wool products.”
Peta is a Wool Young Farming Champion and credits the program for helping to develop her career over the last four years. “I have grown and developed from a school ambassador to representing my industry in the wider community at a range of agricultural events and I have put my hand up to be involved in the Youth Voices Team to give back to the project that has given me so much.”
“Youth are the leaders of tomorrow. They provide a fresh face that people associate with the future. To equip these people with the skills to go forth and represent agriculture in the public and also arm them with high level professional and personal development skills ensures these young people are at the leading edge of our industry.”
