Why are you passionate about farming?

Have grown up with it

Best days of being a farmer:

My farm would be in around the Baralaba district and I would farm beef cattle ideally I would have breeders and sell a mix of Weaners and feeder cattle depending on the country type and markets. My best day would be mustering my cows in to pull weaners off and educate them with some quality working dogs
