South East Victoria and Tasmania Regional Committee
Regional Chair – Georgie Burbury
Georgie Burbury is a sheep producer based in the Northern midlands of Tasmania. Georgie studied Agricultural Science at the University of Tasmania before spending a number of years working in sheep and beef feedlots throughout eastern Australia. In 2011 Georgie returned home to the family farm where she set up a lamb feedlot supplying lamb to both domestic and export markets including certified grain fed lamb into Japan. The feedlot allowed the family to integrate their extensive cropping operation with a more intensive lamb backgrounding and finishing system.
Georgie is now farming full time with her husband Richard on owned and leased properties spread between Campbell Town and Tunbridge. The main focus is on producing prime lambs from a composite based ewe flock and integrating finishing their own and traded lambs into a sustainable cash cropping system.
Georgie has been a Tasmanian producer representative on MLA’s SAMRC committee for four years, has previously chaired the Tasmanian Red Meat Updates Working Group and is a member of the Tasmanian Meat Industry Working Group.
