SELLING cattle is a profession typically dominated by blokes, but Amy Wicks is hoping to change that.

Amy and husband Jason have opened a TopX franchise in the South Burnett.

"I am really excited to be going into business with my husband, Jason. Becoming a livestock agent is something that I have always wanted to do, but never had the opportunity, so I created one," Mrs Wicks said.

"As a teenager I was told that this was not a game for women to be in, but in recent years we have seen more and more women enter into the livestock agency profession. It is refreshing to see."

Mrs Wicks is a regular on the cattle judging circuit and has worked for rural shows.

"I have a rich history in this community; in particular with Agricultural Shows, I was a QLD Runner up Rural Ambassador and a South Burnett Miss Showgirl," she said.

Adding TopX to the mix of pre-existing local agents will likely see greater competition for vendor's stock.

Mrs Wicks and her husband will start selling at Murgon's fortnight fat and store sales, along with running private sales and a real estate. They will also run clearing sales.

"Coming from a farming family I understand the pressures, challenges and time restraints that primary producers have, therefore I want to discuss business with you on your kitchen table or paddocks," she said.
