Greg Rae, a third generation farmer from Kyalite, South Western Riverina, NSW.
He runs his 50,000 acre mixed farming operation, Warrawee, with his wife Sally, their son, Brad, and son in law, Locky.
Producing high protein wheat across 12,000 acres of their property, they supply local mills with wheat for flour. Greg and his family also sell prime lambs and produce wool from their livestock enterprise.
Greg most enjoys the satisfaction that comes with knowing that ultimately customers are benefiting from his products.
Greg knows he can rely on his mates in grain for tips on how to improve his own operation and as a source of valuable information sharing.

What is one thing you rely on your mates in the grain industry for?
