In 2018, the JBS Australia Caroona feedlot’s Feeding Supervisor, Nicole Radcliffe, graduated from the Australian Rural Leadership Foundation’s TRAIL (Training Rural Australians In Leadership) program. Throughout the course, Nicole learned how to step back and review the structure of how things are done and decide how things can be done better.

Feedlot Manager Richard Nicholls had encouraged Nicole to undertake the course and focus on expanding her leadership skills to bring back to the Caroona feedlot. Having spent 10 years in the industry, Nicole has extensive responsibilities leading her team of 10 people, the feeding program and the feed call, as well as managing commodities on site, feed mill maintenance and safety.
