About Mike

I grew up on dairy farms in Wairarapa and Hawke’s Bay before working my way up to 50/50 sharemilking.

I’ve been a FarmWise Consultant since 2000. Before that I worked as a Dairy Board consulting officer. Recently, I spent six years in England as an advisor to farmers of grass-based systems, where grain supplements are a key part of operations.

I understand an array of farming systems used both in New Zealand and abroad. With this depth of experience I can provide you with expert advice on more intensive dairy systems should you wish to pursue such options.

I’m committed to understanding your goals and aspirations, and doing everything within my power to help you achieve them.

Get in touch if you’d like expert advice on how to improve your farming operations.
