The farming operation comprises approximately 2800 hectares, with 1800 ha sown out to mixed cropping. They also run a 4000 merino ewe self-replacing enterprise. Glenn has been using sheep confinement lots since 2008 and firmly believes they are a valuable tool for both sheep and land management.

Proprietor of Old Cobran Poll Merino Stud
Matthew is a multi-generational farmer at Mullengandra. He completed his Advanced Diploma of Agriculture through the University of Melbourne in 2006, before returning home to manage his family property, Old Cobran, North-West of Deniliquin. The property was 8000 hectares of mixed irrigation and dry land cropping, the family’s Poll Merino Stud, and commercial beef cattle. Matthew’s real passion was working with sheep, which led to a business decision that saw operations move east to Mullengandra, in the Eastern Riverina of NSW. This decision proved fruitful, allowing an increase of stock numbers to now run 5000 ewes and commercial cattle on 1820ha of undulating land. Matthew enjoys the challenges that farming brings, and is constantly looking for ways to improve and make the farm more efficient and productive.

An IT application would be developed for assessing the deficiencies in the production system and filling the gap through good practices, including, farming innovations, information technology and renewable energy. Partners are invited for collaboration from CSU and farmers groups. Thanks.
