There’s been changes at the top of the Queensland Farmers Federation, with a new CEO and President taking over the reins.
Dr Georgina Davis has been appointed CEO replacing Travis Tobin, who is joining the Cattle Council of Australia in Canberra.
QFF Vice President Allan Dingle is taking over as President from Stuart Armitage, who is returning to his cotton farm on the Darling Downs.
“Advocating on behalf of and representing QFF’s more than 13,000 primary producers across Queensland is a significant responsibility as farmers face the cumulative effects of significant impacts on their businesses,” Dr Davis said.
“I look forward to supporting and striving for a better deal for Queensland’s farmers and highlighting the exceptional quality of the food, fibre and foliage they produce and the amenity they provide.”
Allan Dingle farms sugarcane, soybeans and fodder crops on his 230ha irrigated property at Bundaberg.
Allan was appointed a Director of QFF in 2014 and has been the Vice President since 2017.
He has also served on several other regional and State level boards including Canegrowers, Bundaberg Regional Irrigators Group, the Bundaberg Grain and Cane Co-op, and the Bundaberg District Groundwater Advisory Committee.
