Dairy Farm Consultant - Waikato Region - Practical Farm Solutions, Supervision & Mentoring

As a 5th generation dairy farmer with 40+ years of practical experience in the dairy farming industry, I am now ready to share my knowledge and experience with the next generation of dairy farmers.

The successes I have achieved with Glen Koru stud breeding program has given me a firm understanding of what is required to achieve business goals. We currently have four bulls in Premier Sires with others still awaiting proof. “Glen Koru Beckon” is currently the top bull of all breeds on the RAS list.

I offer practical advice and mentoring in the following areas -

  •  Pasture Management
  •  Milk Quality
  •  Genetics and breeding
  •  Animal Husbandry
  •  Reports
  •  BCS

I offer my services to the Waikato Region.
