Patrick Joyce is a fourth-generation farmer from the Glenburn area. He working on his family farm from his childhood, a mixed dairy & cross-bred cattle/vealer operation. At a very young age Patrick developed a passion for the cattle industry. He moved away the family farm to work on large scale sheep & cattle operations and quickly realised that cattle was where his interests lay.
He stays up to date with technology & innovation in the farm sector & regularly participates in a variety of courses including Business Management, Grazing for Profit and other animal health and reproduction/genetic courses.
“I always pushed to be the best at whatever I was faced with. I soon identified that I was fascinated with genetics & what it had to offer today’s farmers. I was fortunate to be trusted & given the opportunity to work for a large-scale Angus operation running the ET & AI programs. This experience confirmed to me that this is where I was best suited. An opportunity came up to run Kelly Angus & this is where I hit the ground running. I have a passion to breed deep bodied well balanced animals that do well. I think consistency is key in any seed stock operation & this is what we are achieving at Kelly Angus”
