Hi, my name is Mike Bailey and I have been working in the
UK as a Pasture to Profit consultant since 2007.
I have been working with discussion groups, pasture monitoring focus groups and one on one with farmers throughout
Scotland. My work is focused on bringing the word "profit” back into Dairy farming. My experience as a farmer in
New Zealand means I bring grass roots experience to my work, which lets me see things from the client’s perspective.
I have a degree in Production and Management from
New Zealand and spent 2 years as a farm accountant when I first left University. I then spent 10 years milking cows through the 1990’s, 6 of those as a 50/50 sharemilker. Prior to starting with LIC FarmWise I spent 18 months with what was to later become Dexcel running Dairy Farm Discussion groups.
I was bought up on a 250-cow dairy farm owned by my parents, which provided my early dairying influences. I am married to Christina and have three school age children. Christina and I both have grandparents born in
England and we have both spent short periods holidaying in the
I look forward to getting to know and working alongside the many of you interested in pasture based systems, continuing the good work of the previous P2P consultants focusing on costs and profitability and helping you achieve your goals in the future.
