Jess Cavanagh

Succession Planner


Agriculture is deeply ingrained in Jess’ blood. She is passionate about the evolution of modern agriculture and seeing that farming families are use best practices to ensure longevity and sustainability of the industry. Jess holds a Double degree in Arts/Laws. Has spent the past 3 years as a Solicitor in private firms in Dubbo, primarily in the area of Family Law – children’s and property matters. She also has almost five years experience in Local Government, in the areas of Economic Development and Integrated Planning and Reporting

Jess is fourth generation in a family farming business based near Harden, NSW. Her husband, Brad works on farm and also runs his own Angus stud. Their three children experience so much joy in spending time on the farm; whether it be in sheep yards, joyriding in a header, winrower, or spray rig, or perched on a horse or motorbike. Jess sees family farm living as the best type of lifestyle for raising children and teaching them to realise the major role that agriculture plays both domestically and internationally.

Jess’ dream is that Australian families will continue to have the passion, drive and skill to continue in their roles as custodians of Australian farms, well into the future. Jess believes the Proagtive team has the expertise to assist families in upholding this dream.
