In 2003, my wife Lynne and I, along with my younger brother and his family, moved from the Edendale Family Dairy farm to our present home at Waikaka to farm.
We called the 800 acre property “Halland Downs” and now enjoy the challenge of running 60 stud Angus breeding cows, 50 stud Belted Galloway breeding cows, 10 stud Standard Galloway cows, 2000 commercial breeding ewes, 40 stud Southdown breeding ewes plus the young stock of the above breeding bases.
We have also added grain growing and dairy grazing to our farming mix. We currently lease a property just up the road to compliment the home block.
In my ‘spare’ I have been working for CRV Ambreed as an AI technician. Lynne is a primary school teacher. John my brother is an experienced engineer who enjoys building and playing with machinery. Glenda is a Dispensary Technician at a Pharmacy. Together we work well together as a team, each with our own strengths.
Please feel free to contact me to help meet your breeding requirements.
