Ashley Volz – QLD
Ashley is always thinking outside the square and looking to improve profitability, while retaining sustainable farm practices. Ten years ago, at just 24 years old, Ashley Volz took up the position as chair of South Myall Catchment Landcare Group. During this time he has played a major role in the planning and implementation of new and improved sustainable farming practices for the catchment. Using his own property as a demonstration plot, Ashley has encouraged other local landholders to adopt his methodology that implements low soil disturbance and low-cost methods to utilise stubble from crops with high-density grazing.
