Joe McMillan originally comes from the island of Bute on the West coast of Scotland. He has always wanted to farm in his own right and has worked hard over the years to build his experience and profile within the Spring calving dairy industry.
In October 2018, Joe took on a post with Farming Partners at Nether Garrel farm, Lockerbie and is now the herd manager of a 650 cow Spring calving herd. Joe also leases his own heifers to the business and has a range of opportunities to grow his stake in the business in the coming year. In this video, Brendan Muldowney from Farming Partners also explains how the partnership model works. This is a great example of a partnership in practice.
