Gabby Wyse has never been quiet when it comes to her passion for agriculture.
Through her role with Mid Coast Women in Dairy (a branch of the Mid Coast Dairy Advancement Group), the reigning Taree Showgirl outlined how doors continue to open up for young people to get involved with the industry.
Scholarships are being offered to school students to complete an agricultural employability course. This is run through Taree TAFE and Hunter Local Land Services.
Chatham High School students recently linked up with the program.
"This is a real focus on agriculture and gives them a fair bit of practical experience as well," Gabby said.
"I'd love to see more young people, especially girls, get involved."
Another group making leaps and bounds is the Agricultural Societies Council of NSW Next Generation.
Along with fellow Taree Showgirl entrants, Gabby joined the group shortly after she won the competition last October.
The group encourages young people to communicate and workshop ideas in preparation for future leadership roles in agricultural societies.
In the lead up to the 2019 showgirl competition, Gabby told the Times women need a more prominent role in the industry.
That view hasn't changed.
"I'm a massive supporter of women in dairy, there needs to be more women going out into the industry," Gabby said.
Following the recent zone one showgirl final in Taree, Gabby reveal what she has in store for 2020.
Preparations are already underway for the 2020 Taree Show. Gabby was hopeful a junior show committee could be formed soon.
Also on the cards in the near future is a Taree Showgirl alumni reunion.
"I'd like to do a ball and a fund raiser," Gabby suggested.
She would look to organise this with other show societies in the area.
