What have you been doing to get farm ready?

LOOKING AT STOCK, DIFFERENT FERTILIZERS TO USE, STUDYING, HOW TO RECTIFY DIFFERENT SOILS BIODIAMICALY SO TO GET MINIRALS AND NUTRIENTS UP WITHOUT RELYING ON TO MUCH FERTILISER INPUT. DIFFERENT CASH CROPS. LOOKING AT DIFFERENT AREAS FOR GROUND WATER AS WELL AS CATCHMENT AREAS FOR IRRIGATION EG TURKEY NESTS BUILDING. LOOKING AT GENETICS FOR LIVESTOCK PRODUCTION, PASTURE AND CROPS FOR SILAGE AND HAY PRODUCTION.

Why are you passionate about farming?

THE MOST IAM PASSIONATE ABOUT FARMING IS SEEING HEALTHY SOIL, TREES AND STUDYING GENITICS FOR GROWING THE BEST POSSIBLE PRODUCE THAT I CAN GROW. SEEING YOUNG ANIMALS BORN AND RAISED GROWN ETHEICALLY. THE BEST TIME I BELIEVE IN FARMING IS SPRING TIME. GROWING THE BEST FINE WOOL AND PRIME LAMBS AND HAY FOR EXPORT. DAIRY FARMING AND PIG FARMING. I ALSO HAVE A PASSION FOR BEEKEEPING. .

Best days of being a farmer:

MY DREAM FARM WOULD BE IN A MEDIUM TO HIGH RAINFALL AREA WITH IRRIGATION NOT FAR FROM COASTAL AREA. MY BEST DAYS IN FARMING WOULD BE LOOKING BACK AT HOW THE FARM LOOKS AND WHAT IT IS PRODUCING AND HOW TO IMPROVE ON IT.
