Alice O’Rourke: My trail of learning
Agriculture has always been a part of my life, however, for many years only in the distant background, with weekends away on relatives’ farms, the local show or chats with my pop who was a pioneer in the dairy industry. It was at these times that I fell in love with the agriculture, but I just hadn’t realised it until I got my first job working on a local dairy farm.
Following her studies at Tocal Agricultural College and her Bachelor of Agricultural Business Management at Charles Sturt University, Alice successfully applied for a BBM Youth Support award in 2017.
Her award journey covered 12 countries, lasted 6 months, 6 dairies, 1 genetics stud, 1 gelato bar and 1000s of cows.
