James Mackenzie – Podcast Guest

The very first episode of Farms Advice Agribusiness Podcast we talk with a good mate and see how everything is going within his family’s beef operation, Macka’s Beef. Coming from a hard-working family they are making further opportunities for their enterprise through exporting their beef to China and also starting up their beef jerky by selling direct and to certain stores around the Newcastle NSW region.

James had completed a double degree of B.A. Agriculture and Business at the University of New England as this is where we had both met each other. With hard work driven into him at a young age he ducked back home nearly every weekend during university to help out the lamb or continue bagging chicken manure for locals through the Newcastle region.

As a younger person in agriculture, it is excellent to see how we all adapt to our environments. In this episode, we speak with James about technology, and his own personal experiences of working in agriculture at home.

Saving Water = Sustainable Vineyards | Daniel Fischl Farms Advice Agribusiness Podcast

G'day farmers, welcome to this weeks episode where we dive into agtech within vineyards but with all the similar concepts and values of broadacre and livestock farmers. We have Daniel Fischl on from Padardis, which is a new agritech company derived from years of research in the lab and now more so in the vineyards. Daniel is fighting a much needed problem within viticulture and how vineyards can save time, costs and preserve their flavours by utilising their toolkit on their own enterprise.  With a cracking example in this episode we find out that the amount of watering either increase or decrease can dramatically impact the flavour, taste and value of the wine on offer from the vines. Keen to know more about Padardis or even Eartrumpet Consulting? Hit the links below to get all of the flavours.
