Emma vies for VFF role

MIRBOO North horticulturalist Emma Germano is in the running to become the vice president of the Victorian Farmers Federation.
Ms Germano is currently the VFF horticulture group vice president and is running against Quambatook grains group member Brett Hosking.
Two VFF members are in the running for the position of president – Murra Warra grains group member David Jochinke and Koyuga small farmer member Wade Northhausen.
Mr Jochinke is the current VFF vice president, while Mr Northhausen is president of the VFF West Goulburn branch.
“It’s a fantastic sign that so many of our members take an active role in our organisation and want to be involved in VFF decisions,” VFF CEO Graeme Ford said.
“Representing the VFF is a big responsibility but it’s also an opportunity for people who are passionate about promoting a fair deal for agriculture to step up, lead the way and make a real difference.”
The new executive members will be inaugurated at the annual VFF conference on July 22.
