Personal Summary

I am based in Gore with my wife and four children. Currently I am seeking new employment due to a change in situation at my current farm which makes my position redundant.

I enjoy all aspects of farming and I am always looking to grow my knowledge as well as share what I know from experience.

After a change in employment I reduced my dog team to one huntaway under good control, I haven't had the need to increase it again.
