- New South Wales, Australia
- Farmer and Nurse
Jane Leake was a nominee for the ABC Rural Woman if the year Award in 1997. She was regional winner for the New Eangland district in New South Wales. She manages Bahreenah one of the oldest Poll Hereford studs in Australia.
Jane trained and worked as a nurse before moving into agriculture. (Perhaps her father's professional experience as a doctor, as well as a livestock owner encouraged her down that path.) She returned to the country to run the house of a sow piggery, moving then to a 7000 acre property in the Timor district of New South Wales which ran sheep and cattle. After staring her own business (farm secretarial services) in 1989, she moved back to the family farm, of which she now has total management, in 1990.
