Georgie and Emma Cameron both work in the New Zealand agricultural industry. Emma as nutrient specialist for Ballance and Georgie as an Agri Manager for ANZ. Both enthusiastic about agriculture, the sisters grew up on a sheep and beef farm in Bideford, Wairarapa where their passion for farming began. They have ended up following a similar path into the sector both attending Massey University and Agricultural degrees.
Georgie gained her first job at FMG as a grad 6 years ago and was part of the FMG team until recently taking on a new challenge at ANZ Matamata. She and her partner Glenn are contract milking on a dairy farm in Matamata.
After graduating, Emma returned home to the Wairarapa where she spent a year working for Taratahi Agricultural Training College before she took on the role of Nutrient Specialist for Ballance Agri Nutrients, a role she has been in for almost 3 years now. She and her partner Owen live in Martinborough where Owen works on his family sheep and beef farm.
Although they are in the early stages of their farming journey, they love helping members of their rural community to reach their goals and learning from all the amazing leaders within this sector.
“The rural community is something special - we work with people who have passion to produce world class products, protect the land for the future generations and support each other through the peaks and troughs of both farming and life”.
They hope to continue to get involved even more in the industry both on and off farm. Big advocates of primary industries and food production, one of their aims is to encourage the next generation to choose agriculture as a career. “The rural community has brought us up, opened doors to provide our exciting careers and continues to teach us new skills. We’ve also made lifelong friendships within the industry so helping the next generation is join the sector is what we’d like to be a part of. It’s an exciting industry to be in.”
Sisters that are on a mission- we love it! You are both so involved in the industry and are clearly working so hard to achieve your goals. Keep it up ladies and go hard!
