BCG is delighted to welcome Casey Sim to the team as a Research Agronomist.

What is your background?

I grew up in Inverloch, in south east Victoria, before moving to Melbourne to study a Bachelor of Agriculture at the University of Melbourne. During my time at Melbourne University I spent a semester living and studying at Dookie college, which I really enjoyed. Alongside working at BCG, I am currently completing the final subject in my degree, Plant Pathology.

What is your role at BCG and what will you be doing?

I have started as a research agronomist at BCG. So far this has involved getting to know the cropping trials and assisting in the lab.

What about the role interested you in applying? 

Last harvest I lived and worked up here, driving the chaser bin for the Noonan’s. I really enjoyed the experience and ended up loving the area. I had heard of BCG from my uni lecturer James Hunt and had an interest in research agronomy so whilst I was living in Birchip I got in contact with BCG and now here I am.

What are you looking forward to whilst working at BCG? 

I am really looking forward to learning more and expanding my knowledge of the agricultural sector. I am not from a farming background so it’s all new and exciting to me.

What are your interests outside work?

Outside of work I enjoy hiking, going to the beach, knitting and crocheting. This keeps me busy!
