What have you been doing to get farm ready?

I Have grown up on a hobbie farm with my grandparents owning a dairy in the same valley. I have worked on a dairy farm on and off for 4 years. Working at a local CRT has helped a lot in learning anamil health and pasture improvement. I did a lot of pasture seed mixes for farmers and also helping out in dairy maintenance and repairs. I am now currently working on a small dairy farm which is helping me learn and improve every day.

Why are you passionate about farming?

I love Farming and everything about it, i have been around it my hole life and want to bring my family up on a farm. It has been my dream since I have left school and I also love that I can be around family while working. Farming doesn't feel like work to me It is more of a life style then a job, I just love helping and spending time on the land. This would mean the world to myself and the kids as they are animal crazy they love the farm.

Best days of being a farmer:

I'm not great at these questions as I will keep it short and simple. My dream would be to dairy farm around the uppermurray or around the wodonga tallangatta area. I would love to have a dairy farm that would be big enough to run as a family.
