Q&A - Denise Bewsell, Extension Specialist
I grew up in Australia on a small block just outside Bendigo in central Victoria. I started out working in extension with fruit growers in northern Victoria. Since then I have lived and worked in a few different rural places in Australia before moving to New Zealand. Now I call Christchurch home! I have been part of the RMPP team since the start of 2016.
What does your role involve?
I work in the extension team to support the meat companies who are running extension projects. This means helping to plan extension activities, source information and support, and monitor how each project is going.
What do you most enjoy about working for RMPP?
The people! There is such a great group of people involved in the RMPP programme. And I enjoy working in extension – because it is about helping making a difference with the RMPP partners and sheep and beef farmers.
