What have you been doing to get farm ready?

I have been droving on the national stock routes with my own and clients cattle for the past 4.8years. I am negotiating a long settlement for a property which I an currently running with owners still on site.

Why are you passionate about farming?

I love that we have the ability to ulitlise the nsr (national stock routes) as not only a sustainable paddock but also as transport all in one. The weight gains and behaviour shifts are substantial and improve the quality and demeanor of the beasts, improving the dollar value and safety of handlers/owners.

Best days of being a farmer:

My best is where the grass is green, water us plentiful and the cattle and horses shine with health. I love when tourists stop and take an interest in my mob and the history of our nsr's. I would love to involve tourism to be able to broaden knowledge of our industries on the land.
