Meg Humphrys – new extension officer for the livestock industry in Central Australia
Meg Humphrys will be starting the new year at AZRI as the new Livestock Extension Officer. She replaces Sally Leigo, who started in that position over a decade ago and has moved on to Darwin as the Project Officer for the Cooperative Research Centre for Northern Australia.
Meg is currently a Monitoring Officer at Walhallow Station in the Barkly region but has had various jobs with the Northern Territory Government as a Ranger at Finke Gorge National Park, a Rangelands Monitoring Officer and District Weeds Officer at Tennant Creek.
Not a stranger to stations, she has also worked on Maryvale, Bushy Park and Arapunya Stations in the NT as a shop assistant, station hand and Governess / Nanny.
Meg comes well educated, with a Bachelor of Applied Science (Environmental Science and Management) from Charles Sturt University and a Certificate IV in Conservation and Land Management (NSW). Meg is also qualified to work a chainsaw!
Meg is looking forward to implementing a program of extension activities to directly benefit Central Australian stations. Please look out for Meg in 2019.
