As my final View from the Paddock article I thought, what better way to finish than talk about young people getting involved in agriculture.
There is this perception that it is very hard for young people to get involved, that there is a wall put up from the older generation.
As a young (ish) person that has been involved in many ag groups, I certainly don't see this. What is required is for you to throw your hat in the ring and to follow through with what you want to achieve. I thought I'd break it down to how I've worked through it.
These are just a few points that I have observed during my first five years in the industry.
If you are serious about wanting to get involved, put yourself out there and make contact with an organisation. That will definitely be the hardest part.
