I am a third generation dairy farmer operating a mixture of irrigation and dry land around the original settlement farm. After finishing high school I spent two years at ag college then full time at home. My wife is a nurse and we have three children, two sons 19 and 17 and a daughter 10 who all contribute to the farm.

I live in the Cobram area on a 280 ha property. I have been on the GMW Water Services Committee for two years.

My wife and I milk 250 cows on our farm where we milk jersey and cross bred cows. We have three GMW outlets from two channels with a total of 5.9 delivery shares. One channel has two outlets which has just been modernised with the channel rationalised and replaced with pipe. The other channel has not been modernised and has water delivery through a dethridge wheel.

We have three adult children who work and study off-farm.
