Georgie Somerset, President AgForce

Georgie Somerset is a beef farmer and a passionate advocate for rural and regional communities. Georgie is highly regarded as a leader in the agricultural sector, particularly for women in the industry and in 2018 became General President of AgForce Queensland Farmers Limited (AgForce) – the first woman to do so in AgForce history.

Georgie currently serves on several boards including the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC), Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) and Children’s Health Queensland (CHQ).

When she isn’t living out of a suitcase and attending to her many Board commitments, Georgie loves being at home in the beautiful South Burnett region with her husband on their cattle property, where their three adult children regularly head home to help.
