FarmLink team grows to staff of 10

Posted by Kylie Dunstan at Tuesday, March 26, 2019

Our FarmLink team has experienced a period of growth, with our full-time staff roster growing to 10, covering a range of activities and responsibilities, from research and extension through to bookkeeping and management of Temora Agricultural Innovation Centre.
The research team has been boosted by the addition of James Holding as Senior Trials Agronomist and Caitlin Langley as Research and Extension Officer – joining Senior Research Officer, Eva Moffitt and Colin Fritsch, Research Officer.
Changes have occurred in our administration team, with Lisa Matthews settling into her role as Officer Manager, joined by Julianne Cole as Bookkeeper/Administration Officer.
Lisa Goesch was farewelled from her role as bookkeeper in late February.
Other members of the team are Cindy Cassidy (CEO), Kylie Dunstan (Communications), Chris Williams (Farm Manager) and El Warren (Events).
FarmLink’s growing capacity and skills base allows us to roll out a suite of projects across Southern NSW, as well as co-ordinating projects for the GRDC Northern Region and on a national scale for the Bureau of Meteorology. In addition to this the research team is taking feedback from members and developing ideas of their own to apply for funding and eventual future projects which will contribute to the productivity, sustainability and innovation in agriculture in the FarmLink region and beyond.
The management of Temora Ag Innovation Centre on behalf of Temora Shire Council continues, including filling renovated office spaces with Precision Agriculture, Local Land Services and Landcare, developing TAIC into a hub for agriculture in the region.
