COUNTRYMAN | Former WAFarmers Grains Council president Duncan Young joins Grain Producers Australia

York farmer Duncan Young has made his first major foray into agripolitics in three years after joining the Grain Producers Australia board feeling “recharged” and eager to represent WA on a national scale.

Mr Young replaced Broomehill farmer Gerard Paganoni, who stepped down as one of the GPA board’s two western region directors after serving two two-year terms.

The move comes three years after Mr Young stepped down as grains council president at WAFarmers, but he remains a director of the State farm advocacy group and a member of its Avon grains council.

Mr Young said he felt refreshed after scaling-back his industry advocacy and contribution compared to “four or five years ago”, and said he had been impressed with how GPA had performed at a national scale.
