What have you been doing to get farm ready?

Working in Ag industry, research and postgrad study, parents have a family farm in Northern NSW.

Why are you passionate about farming?

Grew up on a property (wool and irrigation) near Hay, NSW and I've always wanted to go back. I'm interested in cropping and livestock production and have a real passion for Precision Ag and AgTech and improving productivity.

Best days of being a farmer:

I'm not too focused on where my dream farm would be located, as I know there is so much good country out there that I'm not even aware of. My farming background is in livestock and crop production, so is think that my dream farm would be something similar, however I wouldn't dismiss any other opportunities if they came along. On my best days I'd spend my time looking over and monitoring the farm, both in person but also through remote monitoring sensors. Each day would be spent determining how to best improve operations and how technology can be implemented to reduce their risk and stress involved with traditional farming practices. Evenings would be spent relaxing with a beer on the verandah.
