Episode 35. Michael Armstrong

More Than Milk

30-10-2023 • 50 minutos

Michael Armstrong farms in Korumburra, where he has been share farming for the last 18 years and is currently milking 900 cows on a 50/50 share. Although it hasn’t been easy, the asset growth they’ve seen has certainly allowed them to build their dairy farming business. They have recently purchased their own farm, and built a new herringbone dairy where they milk another 400 cows, but has the capacity to double that.

Throughout this chat he gives great insight into how they’ve set their share farming agreement up, how they’ve grown the business, used export heifers to fund their land purchase, how they rear every calf that’s born and manage the wet pastures of South Gippsland. He also shares very openly his financial drivers and the luck they've experienced previously with a good milk price and high profit export markets that has seen them grow to the position they are in today.

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.
