Marc Johnston will be joining us in February for the 2020 Gardiner Dairy Foundation UDV New Zealand Study Tour as we travel through the South Island of New Zealand.
Originally from Ireland Marc is currently based in Larpent where he works as a herd manager on a 650 cow dairy. While being more involved in beef farming in Ireland Marc always had an ambition to move to dairy farming and moving to Australia has aided this transition.
Herd health, nutrition and being involved in the breeding programs are some of Marc’s favourite aspects of working on farm. Marc hopes to one day share farm and, like many around him, become an inspiring young person within the dairy industry. Marc considers himself a passionate cow person and hopes to further his knowledge in all aspects of dairy farming over the coming years.
We look forward to having Marc along to the 2020 Gardiner Dairy Foundation UDV New Zealand Study Tour and seeing what finding he will bring back to the Victorian dairy industry.
