What have you been doing to get farm ready?

Studying farming methods

Why are you passionate about farming?

I love the lifestyle, outdoors and work rewards.I was born and raised on family run farms with crops,cattle and sheep and am very passionate about farming and best case practices for continuous improvement in production.My end goal is to control my own farm and have the farming lifestyle again

Best days of being a farmer:

I would love a mixed farm of cropping, cattle and sheep.Ideally in Qld but would look at other options. The best days for me would be when a mob of heifers all calve together and easily and when the right rain falls on a young crop that to me is fantastic
