Anika Molesworth is a young 28 year old from Broken Hill who in 2015 was selected as the Australian Young Farmer of the Year. Anika is currently completing her PhD. Her pet interests concern equity for farmers in Australia and overseas and climate change.
She also believes that production should not come at the expense of natural resources. In 2016 Anika was invited to speak at the Soil Care conference at Cairns and spoke with great passion for the future of Australia agriculture. The presentation lasted 19 minutes and is well worth spending that time viewing her speech.
