She joins the program having more than 20 years of experience in agriculture, including expertise in marketing, accumulation, education, financing and rural policy.

She has previously won acknowledgement for her contribution to the industry with her inclusion in inaugural 100 Women in Australian Agribusiness Awards.

Mrs Hausler is also vice-chair of Rural NorthWest Health board and a member of Birchip Cropping Group research committee and took part in an Australian Rural Leadership Program in 2012-2013.

The GrainGrowers leadership program works with people keen to share the story of Australian grain.

The program is designed to further equip individuals with leadership and communication skills.

GSLP is part of GrainGrowers’ five-year mission to build a ‘Grains100’ list. The list will comprise 100 progressive grower leaders to build the social licence and sustainability of the Australian grains industry by sharing their experiences as food producers.

GrainGrowers grower and industry development general manager Kaitlin Leonard said GSLP was about ensuring grain farmers were powerful voices for the industry, channelling awareness and understanding to communities.

 “We’ve seen the impact growers sharing what is happening on their farms can have and how appreciated it is by so many people who might not have known the hows and whys around grain production previously,” she said.
