Abstract

I run a mixed enterprise, dairy, deer and maize growing farm based on high value Tirau ash soils situated between Tirau and Matamata. Many neighbouring farms are being purchased for vegetable cropping as urban spread in Auckland forces the likes of Balle Bros and Wilcox & Sons further south. I continue to practice as a large animal veterinarian primarily serving dairy farmers, but also meeting quality assurance and animal welfare needs of the deer industry. After 35 years working with farmers, I am still amazed by the skill, inventiveness and sheer creativity demonstrated by so many of my clients.
