In this episode of Behind the Beef we will be joined by Milly Nolan and Cam Parker, who through their roles in the industry are working to make change in terms of bettering and sustaining the industry in different ways.
Milly is a farmer/shearer’s daughter from regional VIC. She has experience across many agricultural supply chains all over Australia, including live export, extensive grazing in Western QLD, wool testing and meat research. Milly travels all over Australia to deliver professional development and supply chain capacity building workshops and now as the Program Manager for The Livestock Collective, Milly is keen to unite the livestock industry and ensure our voice is heard.
Cam Parker has had a wide and varied career. After actively contributing to policy setting bodies and representative groups as a producer in Victoria and in Queensland, Cam has shifted to a full-time policy career as Policy Manager at Primary Producers SA, working to bridge the gap between producers and those who influence and make decisions that affect Australian Agriculture. Cam has extensive experience and success in navigating complex matters on behalf of producers at a state and national level, working closely with governments, bureaucracies, and the National Farmers Federation.
We spoke to Cam and Milly regarding what drives their passion for change, how they got to be where they are today and what advice they would give fellow young people in the industry.
