What have you been doing to get farm ready?

Not alot recently. I grew up on a dairy farm and have worked on other farms as well. I'm open and very interested in learning new skills and information.

Why are you passionate about farming?

I'm passionate about farming as I get great satisfaction from knowing Iam feeding people. And I really enjoy the challanges farms have.

Best days of being a farmer:

My goal is to farm in the gippsland area. Farming dairy and or beef cattle. As I really enjoy growing a strong genetic herd of cattle. And producing the best quality dairy and beef. Iam happy to be working hands on with either beef or dairy cattle. And quality machinery to produce quality crops and pastures for the cattle to graze and be fed conserved fodder. So there growth rate are fast and milk production is of the hight quality.
