Netta established an extraordinary record of achievement at a young age. She was a winner of the Angus Australia University of Illinois Scholarship in 1989, which gave her the opportunity to build upon her developing knowledge of the beef industry. She was the founding Chair of the local Landcare Group and assisted in the development of a regional Angus group. She has a commitment to sustainable agriculture which was aptly demonstrated in a twenty-five year plan for the family property Noonee Nyrang.

Netta has a first class honours degree in Botany from the University of Sydney, majoring in Botany and Ecology. She also has her Artificial Insemination and Preg-testing certificates.
