Nicholas McBride

Nicholas McBride grew up on a cattle property near Rockhampton and completed his Bachelor of Agriculture in 2018. He currently works as an Agronomist at Vary Agricultural Services Pty Ltd and ranges across dryland and irrigated farming properties between Toowoomba and Millmerran and as far north as Cecil Plains and Jondaryan, advising farmers on a range of factors.

As part of the pioneering degree intake in 2016, Nicholas did a livestock placement in his second year of university, followed by a cropping placement near Springsure in his final year, which broadened his capacity in agriculture.

Nicholas now has a breadth of experience in soil and water science, plant physiology and data management and analysis, along with a current understanding of the technology being used in the field, which all has played a vital role in preparing him for the work he does now.
