Originally from the Kiewa Valley, Vic, Monica Ley (T: @ley_monica) is a 5th generation farmer who currently spends her days as the Livestock Manager at Canowie, a mixed farming operation and home to the Canowie Poll Merino Stud in the Upper South East of SA.
Having worked across a vast range of agricultural systems across three states, Monica found herself at home in grazing livestock production as she has a keen interest in animal health, reproduction and livestock related technologies. Her interest in the attitudes towards reproductive technologies in the livestock sector formed the basis of her Bachelor of Agricultural Science research, and then later investigated the lifetime maternal production of Merino ewes in post-graduate study. After becoming a cattle station manager at 24, Monica battled many challenges of being young and female in an industry where she felt like an outsider and aims to empower those in agriculture who don’t fit the status quo to take up space and find their place in ag.
