Introducing new DPIR farm manager for the Darwin Region
Pieter Conradie, Coordinator of Research Farms
Meet Anthony Green
Anthony Green commenced in the position of Regional Farm Manager for the Darwin region in July. He is responsible for the effective and efficient management and operation of two of the Department’s Top End Research Farms. This role includes the day to day management of Beatrice Hill Farm and providing strategic support and direction for Douglas Daly Research Farm.
Anthony’s experience includes being employed in the role of farm manager for eight years on a grazing farm and stud bull breeding operation on South Australia’s Fleurieu Peninsula. During this time he was also involved with running beef field days. As deputy chairman of the beef group he collaborated with Meat and Livestock Australia and the University of Adelaide on research projects trialling the monitoring and reduction of methane gas from bovines. Another successful project was the breeding and widespread release of dung beetles to reduce flies.
He has significant experience with artificial insemination, breeding programs, data recording, livestock registrations, livestock movement, livestock sales, and financial and budget management.
Anthony said, “This position caught my attention as I believe it would suit my existing experience of grass roots to corporate level agricultural management experience. Coupled with my genuine passion for cattle, agriculture, its people and the environment”.
Anthony has moved into the farm manager’s residence at Beatrice Hill Farm with his wife and three children and is keen to try his hand at the local sport, fishing and pig hunting, when the opportunity arises.
The research farm group and researchers welcome Anthony on board and are looking forward to working with him to support the cattle and buffalo industry in the Top End and explore opportunities for research farms.
