Henry currently manages Dukes Plain in central QLD, which he leases from a resource company, with his wife Anna, and three young children. Henry grew up on a family cattle property in the Central Burnett area of QLD and studied at university in Brisbane, before returning home to manage the property.
After completing succession in 2012 Henry took over the management of the family business. Following this shift, Henry attended GrazingforProfit® (GFP) in 2013. Wanting to implement what was learnt at GFP, Henry and Anna started the 3-year ExecutiveLink® program the same year.
During ExecutiveLink®, the business had many breakthroughs. Major destocking due to drought in 2014 lead to the decision to move from the home property to manage Dukes Plain, in partnership with the Joyce Family. Then followed turning the business profitability around, improving the land condition of the family property before deciding to sell it, and reconciling with family after a difficult succession.
At Dukes Plain, Henry manages a time-controlled grazing system on 3425ha using the RCS grazing principles. The property is certified organic and used to trade organic and conventional dry cattle. Henry has also learnt different approaches to vegetation/biodiversity retention and the practical application of biodynamics and radionics, through managing Dukes Plain.
Henry repeated GrazingforProfit® in 2016, attended RCS Grazing Clinics and Keep In Touch Days, as well as Low Stress Stockhandling and KLR Marketing schools, Quantum Leap 1 and 2, Dawson Program and Biodynamic workshops.
Henry was fortunate to have a mentor through transforming the business and this has inspired him to help others use the knowledge and skills available through RCS to take control of their business and achieve what they want in life.
