Cathy escaped metropolitan daily journalism and the Melbourne traffic after more than 25 years at News Limited and The Age, and has also worked for Racing Victoria and the Bloodhorse Breeders Association.
Now she unravels the politics of agriculture and water, meeting the players who make up the agricultural scene. From farmers to researchers to show secretaries and working dog owners, they all have a story to tell.
Cathy has a small flock of stud South Suffolk sheep and hopes to turn it into a bigger one. Until she grows rich on the sheep’s back (well it worked for the squatters) she’ll continue to enjoy her horse pursuits including hunting, and slipping extra equine stories into Country News when Geoff’s away.
