WGCMA Healthy Soils Project 2017 – Nigel Kerin (Bengworden)
March 29, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pm
thriving, not just surviving
Nigel Kerin – Kerin Poll
NSW Farmer of the Year (2008)
“You must know your enemy well, your enemy isn’t drought, your enemy is a lack of cash-flow” – Nigel Kerin.
Nigel has successfully managed to transition from a high input, high risk cropping and grazing enterprise to a resilient, thriving grazing enterprise. Since 2007, the Kerin’s have doubled the size of their property, not brought feed in from off farm, have consistently topped their ram sales, and watched their business grow every year.
Nigel is passionate about helping other farmers to get off the high input, high risk treadmill and will happily disclose his entire business operation – balance sheet, profit and loss, debt levels and debt servicing – to help convince others that it’s possible to strike a better balance and thrive in the farming game.
