Michelle is a contract milker, alongside her dedicated husband. They are milking 330 cows in coastal Manawatu. With 2 now, high school children, their life is busy! Michelle runs the business side of things, from accounts to health and safety, she rears the calves, 160 of them, works on the farm during the day and milks on weekends and whenever she is called on during the week.

"The other half and I AI the cows ourselves which we love! Breeding is our passion. Our cows, mostly Jerseys, are THE BEST!! Love, love, love our cows! Milking takes much longer when Im in the shed because we all need to stop for a pat and a scratch."

Michelle, your cows sound absolutely spoilt and we love it! We enjoy hearing how passionate you are for your life as an AgWomen.
