After working in a Trading bank for 5 & 1/2 years, I went 50/50 share-milking on my in-laws 145ha property in 1978, milking 300 cows. We bought our present farm in 1985 and operated it until 2007, when we leased the farm.
During that time we greatly valued the help of Nutri-Link advisers, first Brian Tylee, and then Graham Parker. Having a keen interest in animal health and production, I enjoyed their recognition of the importance of nutrition in every mouthful of pasture.
Nutri-Link's philosophy has always appealed to me, so I enjoy being part of the Nutri-Link team's enthusiastic approach to, and their generous sharing of many years experience and knowledge of pastoral farming.
My interests include rugby, which I played and coached, surf lifesaving, and golf, which both Robyn my wife, and I play and enjoy.
