Show Notes

On this episode it is my pleasure to host Dr Jo Newton, Research Scientist with Agriculture Victoria.  Jo has recently been awarded a Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) for her contribution to agriculture through her advocacy and support of young people, volunteering and contribution to dairy science.  In recent times she has also been named on the 2018 Australian Financial Review 100 Women of Influence List as well as winning a swag of awards during her first decade in the industry.  I chat with Jo about the dairy industry, the contrast with the sheep and beef industries as well as some of her experiences to date.
