Episode 48. PART 1 - Will Ryan

More Than Milk

12-02-2024 • 1 hora 1 minuto

Will currently sharefarms alongside partner Kate in Lardner… but the path to get there certainly hasn’t been straight forward. And as you will notice this is only part 1 of this incredible chat, because it’s a big one - so after finishing school, unsure of what he wanted to do, Will returned home to his parent’s dairy farm who had ridden on the coattails of capital gains. But just as he was about to finish his university degree, his world went into a spin with a cancer diagnosis for his father, followed by his sudden death and just like many other family farms, succession hadn’t been discussed. So in this incredible first half of the chat, Will shares how he felt after the loss of his family farm, how he had was provided with an opportunity to work at Jelbart’s Dairy alongside Tim & manager Mike, managing Caldermeade & dealing with animal activists, and learn quickly how to look after the health of 2500 animals running around.

There is so much still to this story, so next week for Part 2 includes what it’s like to  manage Ellinbank Research Facility, having cows research ready at all times, how he made the move to sharefarming and what's next… you really won’t want to miss it!

In the spirit of reconciliation we would like to acknowlegde the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their Elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
