James and his wife Sophie manage a 1250 cow farm in an equity partnership with another local farming family at Cressy.

James has previous experience in Corporate Agriculture, RDCs and legal practice after studying a double degree in Commerce and Law.

Being relatively new to the dairy industry James has taken the opportunity to learn from other dairy farmers through being the recent Dairy Tas Focus farm. This has given James a passion for pasture management and systemisation of the dairy farming process.
