Celia Hobbs

I grew up within a family of wool growers but have found dairy is my industry of choice. Taking some time off the family farm after schooling to pursue a career in Photography, graphic design and Arts, the passion for farming has led me home. Now with children of our own along with my partner and family we are operating a dairy just out of Lockington Victoria.
Our dairy consists of 250 cows in a freshly renovated 14 double up stall gated herringbone. We have the goal to increase our numbers to 300 and engaging in the genetics of our herd along with breeding replacements. I have a special interest in cow health, the next generation of dairy farming and the positives within the industry. We calve down our herd twice a year and rear all beef and dairy calves on our adjoining farms.
I was fortunate enough to be a participant in the Proud To Be A Dairy Farmer and Get To Know Fonterra programs and found these programs have ignited my true passion for representation in dairy farming.
My hobbies outside of the farm are photography, enjoying our border collies and spending time with the kids and family.
