A city girl from 0 to 34 yrs old young whose only pet was a goldfish, moving into the farming world in 2007 has been an amazing adventure. After over a decade in the construction industry I traded my hard hat and steel toe cap Blundstones for an akubra and a pair of wellies (gumboots). The project management skills of counting bricks, money budgets and benchmarking have seamlessly transferred to the farm where I now count cattle (way more rewarding), draw up pasture budgets and measure performance.
I love our mums and my favourite season is spring when our fields (paddocks) are filled with numerous happy black four legged Angus babies running around and snuggling contentedly beside their proud mums.
In the early years, I was responsible for the day to day running of the farm and learned many new skills from tractor driving to low stress animal husbandry as well as being an avid DPI course junkie for four years.
I still get to cattle whisper but also spend time in the office doing the behind the scenes work to ensure our business runs smoothly and efficiently so our cattle can enjoy a happy, contented life. I am also responsible for marketing and social media.
For fun I enjoy hanging with my hubby, practicing yoga, horse riding, reading and chilling with my girl friends (both two and four legged)
