The Role of the Victorian Farmer's Federation in Agriculture

Danyel has just been appointed as the vice-president of the Victorian Farmer's Federation.

At 28, Danyel is the federation's youngest ever vice-president.

Ms Cucinotta said she hoped her election would encourage other women and young people working in agriculture to take on leadership positions. "We have different ideas. We see things differently," she said.

Ms Cucinotta is a third-generation farmer who works on her family egg farm at Werribee South.

She said farmers needed to better impart a modern picture of farming to consumers, including advancements in technology and animal welfare.
