John Maudsley is a grain grower from Westmar
John loves seeing the crops he produces supplying food to people across Australia. That is the greatest reward in what he does.
John is always striving to make his operation as efficient as possible. With three kids under the age of 7, efficiency is particularly important in balancing the needs of a young family alongside the demands of farming life.
John works between his 7,500 acre Westmar property, which is used solely for the cropping of wheat, chickpeas and barley, and the 2,500 acre feed lot he runs alongside his father and sister in Goomeri.
