About Dean

Less stress, higher economic surplus and a happy workforce. This is what I can provide for you, your family and your staff.

With more than 18 years practical experience in the industry, I understand what it means to be a dairy farmer. Because of this I’m able to easily relate to everyone on a farm – owner, sharemilkers, manager and staff. You’ll get the right advice in the right context, which will allow you to make the right decisions.

I can advise and support you in all areas of farm management, including:

  • staff recruitment
  • employment contracts
  • dispute resolution
  • feed budgeting
  • round planning
  • all aspects of pasture based farming systems.

Because FarmWise is part of LIC I can provide you with unrivalled access to the latest technical information and farming developments.

Get in touch if you want to farm with less stress, generate more profit and maintain a happy workforce.
