Team Te Mania members, Ralph and Krissi Kuhn, Coolah, NSW nominated for Weekly Times Farmer of the Year

“A PASSION for genetics and strong focus on performance is how Ralph and Krissi Kuhn have built up their Angus herd, writes Nicola Bell.

And while the past few years has been tough, with a bushfire burning 1619ha of their property in 2017 and then going in to drought, their focus on future proofing their operation has helped them maintain good numbers of cattle.

Ralph was a vet, a career he worked in full-time until the end of 2017, while Krissi was full-time on the property. They purchased their first property, Allambi at Coolah in Central West NSW in 1985. They then continued to purchase property when they could and their aggregation now totals 4170ha.

As each purchase has been made the focus has been to water, subdivide, pasture improve and erect necessary infrastructure on each block.”
