TEAM

Mark Ritchie
Farmer and
Senior Advisor

Mark and his wife Fenella have been running the family grazing enterprise on Delatite Station, Mansfield since 1990. They operate on 2,600 ha running two enterprises, a self-replacing flock of fine wool merinos and a self-replacing, spring calving herd of Angus cows.

 

Mark holds a bachelor of applied science in computing and since coming back on the farm he and Fenella have run a profitable business based on an ability to identify risks and develop management strategies to deal with them, whilst continually focusing on the main goal of improving productivity through evidence-based decision making and the adoption of new technology.

 

Mark has a strong interest in raising the profile of agriculture in order to attract the brightest minds "back to the farm" and sees the introduction of new technology as crucial to achieving that goal.
