Corbin Schuster raises food security issues

Freeling farmer, Corbin Schuster’s ideas about food security have earned him a place at a youth agriculture summit in Canada later this year.

The sixth generation broadacre farmer will attend the Feeding a Hungry Planet Youth Ag Summit in August, where he will present his views on global food security.

Corbin, 23, was one of only two people out of 34 applicants across the country to win an all expenses paid trip to the summit.

He said he was looking forward to gaining a better understanding of agriculture outside Australia, including the region tours and guest speakers at the event.

“I was completely blown away, there was a lot of competition from the other applicants and I was shocked to hear I was selected,” Corbin said.

Corbin has travelled to Cambodia, New Zealand, Europe and America over the past few years and has seen many forms of agriculture and varying degrees in poverty.

His knowledge of agriculture and experiences helped him to write his winning essay about how to feed a hungry planet.
