What have you been doing to get farm ready?

I've currently been leasing land for the past 6/7 years, have ran sheep and currently beef steers at the present moment. Worked in saleyards on and off under my father whose a stock agent locally for past 35+ years

Why are you passionate about farming?

I got brought up on a dairy farm, then brought up around a beef farm and taken to several farms in the district with my father. It is a passion of mine to own my own farm one day. As I enjoy seeing the possibilities and having variety in what I do in life.

Best days of being a farmer:

Dream farm would be in south west Victoria, preferably close to a township. Possibility of having a house on it would be ideal or already existing one to live in. Best days are coming home and being able to relax, know what's around you is all yours and the luxury of being able to go check or fix whatever is needed at the time.
