What have you been doing to get farm ready?

Currently working on a 1200ha mixed farm in north west nsw. Covering all aspects of a mixed farm with irrigation pivots, beef cattle and dry land cropping

Why are you passionate about farming?

I’m passionate about farming because once you have got the rewarding feeling of planting a crop or seeing a calf born and watching them grow, and knowing that you have done the best you can do to give them the very best chance to grow into the bet they can be it’s incredible, there’s a different challenge everyday, and you never quite no what each day will involve

Best days of being a farmer:

Go out in a morning work all day loving what I do and come home in an evening looking forward to doing it all again tomorrow. Where the farm is depends at the moment it’s anywhere that is green. The dream really is a mixed farm with crops and beef production.
