whole. I’m ex­cep­tion­ally pos­i­tive about the in­dus­try be­cause I re­ally do bloody love it and I hope that comes across in my tweets. I don’t think I ac­tively try and pro­mote agri­cul­ture. I don’t try to con­vert peo­ple, but more just show them the beauty and di­ver­sity of my job.

“I re­ally do think it is the best job in the world. I’ve al­ways posted pos­i­tively about Ag, but I sup­pose I show­case NZ a lit­tle more, be­cause I’ve also fallen in love with this coun­try and what it has given me.

“I also use my Twit­ter to ask for a lot of ad­vice about dif­fer­ent sub­jects. Last week I put up a poll to ask ad­vice on how many sheep I should run in one mob, which then went on to var­i­ous dis­cus­sions about ro­ta­tional graz­ing.

“I also love that my pho­tos and posts reach those that have never stepped foot on a farm. “It makes my day, when I re­ceive a mes­sage from some­one telling me that a photo I posted of Blue, my dog, has bright­ened their day whilst they’re sat in an of­fice cu­bi­cle”, she said.
