Business Area In his role as a Farm Management Consultant and with his agronomy experience, Rob covers the following areas: Developing and implementing strategies to assist farmers into action plans from which they can make better business decisions.
Benchmarking results against industry levels and determining year to year profitability.
Provide systems knowledge and analysis to improve outcomes. Practical insights and economic valuation on crop rotation, weed managment, grazing, genetics and livestock.
Background Rob was raised on a mixed farm in east Mullewa before attending high school in Geraldton. He finished his formal education in Perth with a tertiary degree in Agricultural Science which provided the pathway to his first professional position as a research economist with the Department of Agriculture WA based in Perth.
Following this Rob and his wife enjoyed an extended period travelling and working around the world. Upon arrival back home he went on to work at the family farm where Rob's role was to manage the cropping enterprise.
Through this time Rob's desire to be a farmer diminished, but he could see a bright future for the Agricultural industry. Hence he gained employment as an agronomist with Elders where he worked in the Geraldton Port Zone for 7 years.
During this time Rob developed specialist knowledge in spray application technology and crop disease management along with sound expertise in all facets of crop and pasture agronomy. Following this Rob took on a leadership role with the Northern Ag Region as project manager of the farming systems team, specialising in the delivery of communications platforms and maintaining relationships with industry on DAFWA's behalf.
This success was rewarded with a similar role across the entire wheat belt. After 9 years with DAFWA Rob was very keen to go back to roots and engage with client servicing again focussing on whole farm management.
Interests In his spare time Rob tends to be doing some sort of exercise or trying to avoid being a home handyman. His sporting interests include tennis, running and going to the beach in summer. Rob enjoys camping and getting away with friends and family. He also participates and encourages his children with their sporting and extra-curricular activities.
