About Phil

Dairy farming has been a part of my life since I was a kid growing up on a farm in Pungarehu. I took this passion to Massey University where I completed a Master of Applied Science (Hons), majoring in Plant Science. From there I’ve worked in technical and consultancy roles in the dairy farming industry for a number of years while overseeing the running of a family-owned dairy farm in Okato, Taranaki.

As a FarmWise consultant I can provide you with individually-tailored professional, practical and science-based advice on all aspects of farming, including:

  • farm supervision, visits and audits
  • feed budgeting and rotation planners
  • farm systems analysis for best use of supplements
  • financial budgets, analysis and monitoring
  • tailored fertiliser and cropping programs
  • nutrient budgeting and modelling
  • governance, succession and transition planning
  • human resource management including interviewing new staff and establishing contracts with associated documents.

Get in touch if you want advice about how to get the most out of your farm.
