Jeff Bennett farms west of Condobolin at Kiacatoo with his wife Lisa and 3 children. Jeff has been continuous cropping for the last 20 years growing cereal grains, canola and chickpeas with an increasing interest to incorporating livestock into his business. With a focus to compliment his cropping program and to establishing perennial pastures to utilise less efficient land for annual cropping.
Jeff is a strong believer research underpins how farmers can respond to changes outside their control that affect farm performance and is enthused by local practice change, innovation of technologies, growth of enterprises and weather patterns in the last 20 -30 years. The local relevant research and extension activities that Central West Farming Systems can provide are a driver for Jeff’s involvement with the farming systems group.
