Mi Vida Loca!

If you’re coming with me you need nerves of steel
‘Cause I take corners on two wheels
It’s a never-ending circus ride
The faint of heart need not apply

These are the opening line to one of my favorite songs. It’s by Pam Tillis, and the moment I heard the opening verse, I knew it was about me!

So, welcome to my crazy life!

My husband and I decided that dairy farming is where we needed to be about eight years ago. It took us a while but two farms later, here we are!

Hubby has a long family history of milking cows. I, on the other hand, stated in no uncertain terms many years ago, that I would never milk cows for a living.

Its been a steep learning curve for me, but I’ve finally found my feet and am discovering how truly amazing and rewarding dairy farming is.

This blog is my insiders perspective on the dairy industry and the day-to-day life of a dairy farmer, mother and woman.

If you have any question, opinions or just want to say hello you can leave me a message here or follow me on Twitter.

I would much rather you asked me a question about dairy farming in Australia – the good, the bad and the ugly! – than base your views on things you read in a city newspaper or social media site.

  1. Hi Alison
    I follow you on twitter. I spent my childhood on a dairy farm at Gloucester. There were Germons around those parts. Good horse people from memory.
    My mum is a Higgins and my granny was a Stanton. Also horse people.
    Are you at Gloucester?


    • Hi David. You’ll know my hubby Blocka then. We’re near Wingham these days. Blocka wanted to farm at Gloucester but there was nothing available. We are loving it here! Am I following you? If not tag me in a tweet and I will.
