What have you been doing to get farm ready?

Have acquired 25 Cows and Calves currently running on agistment. Have been told to remove them so are looking for opportunities for somewhere to put them. 30 stud Poll Dorset ewes, selling 15 plus rams a year. The next step is just to find land to grow and to build towards owning our own piece of land.

Why are you passionate about farming?

Have been farming my whole life. Very Passionate about stud breeding and producing rams and Bulls.

Best days of being a farmer:

Anywhere in the South West Slopes where we can expand our Poll Dorset stud to produce rams for commercial clients - where i also can continue to pregnancy scan sheep to meet new clients and learn new systems. Running commercial cattle and merino ewes to join to Poll Dorset rams. Best day would be days of which AI of ewes occur, start of lambing/calving and the days you sell the rams or any of your livestock.
