Episode 42. Brodie Game

More Than Milk

18-12-2023 • 1 hora 2 minutos

Brodie Game believes hard work will beat talent every single time, but I think she has plenty of both. As first generation farmers, she and husband Kevin were determined to fight for their dream of being dairy farmers and they certainly have had a number of setbacks along the way.  With limited financial options, dry seasonal conditions, a fire wiping out a large portion of their land and some very HIGH stress situations, it’s no surprise they both considered giving it all up.

But its communication, networking and relationships have really driven the success of their business, with onlookers offering the opportunity to lease a farm and the financial backing for purchasing cows along with being a focus farm with Dairy NSW which has seen them continue on and to help them reach their farming goals.

Brodie is incredibly open and honest in this chat, sharing that at times she and Kev were both not ok mentally, but thankfully were able to get some support and now knows everyone has a mental health toolbox in their heads, sometimes you just need help to find the key, to fill it with the right tools and to keep them serviced just like you would any other piece of machinery on the farm.

This is a really brilliant chat, but just as a reminder if you are in need of some mental health support, to help find those keys, add some more tools in or to keep them sharpened - please reach out! There are a number of services available all across the different regions, or online so please get help if you need it.

If you know someone who you think would be great on the podcast, or you would like to share your story, please get in touch by sending an email to podcast.morethanmilk@gmail.com or stay connected by following us on Instagram or Facebook and send us a message - I'd love to hear from you.

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.
