SoilsForLife – case study
Alasdair Macleod’s Macdoch Ag Group purchased Wilmot, in the New England region of NSW, with the dream of finding a better way to graze. With an early career in the financial sector and a family background in farming, he saw great potential to trial and demonstrate techniques that could withstand the ravages of both natural disasters and market fluctuations. Alasdair worked closely with on-site manager Stuart Austin and others to develop innovative strategies to manage the cattle farming enterprise.
This case study summary shares the story of the transformation of Wilmot through the lens of the decision makers as they converted a conventionally managed cattle farming enterprise into a highly efficient demonstration site.
