LIVING on a cattle property between Charleville and Quilpie, Megan Vetter has always had a passion for the rural industries.

Growing up, she wanted to become a vet to further her knowledge on cattle for farming efficiency.

Fast track a few years and Megan Vetter has graduated from university, recently started working at Brisbane Valley Vets and just put up her hand as the rural ambassador for the Toogoolawah Show Society.

"It was suggested to me to enter the rural ambassador competition through my work here at the clinic," Dr Vetter said.

Dr Vetter was uncontested in her rural ambassador journey but it hasn't stopped her from getting involved with her new show society.

"I haven't been here that long ... that's the big thing for me, getting to know people in the town," she said.

"I like the community spirit that you get in the rural town, everyone always says hello."

"The next step is being able to represent the Toogoolawah Show Society."

She's hopeful her farming knowledge will benefit her at the sub chamber final.

Dr Vetter said from an early stage, she knew she wanted to become a vet.

"I'm the youngest of three girls, and we all said at some stage we wanted to become vets," Dr Vetter said.

"The number one reason I wanted to become a vet was to have the knowledge and kills to work in the cattle industry when I was younger.

"I wanted to know how to effectively run the cattle farm."

But attending vet school added some new found passions for Dr Vetter.

"Then when you go to vet school you learn about all the other animals," she said.

Dr Vetter will put her rural knowledge to the test on Saturday night at the sub chamber final for the West Moreton and Brisbane Valley rural ambassador representatives.
