A strong rural network

Russell has been associated with the rural community all his life and as a result has developed a large network of acquaintances.

He was raised on a sheep and beef property in the King Country, attended Massey University graduating with an Agricultural Science degree.
He operated a ram and bull breeding property at Kiwitea, north of Feilding,  before selling the majority of it in 1998. He has retained an 11 hectare lifestyle block at Kiwitea where he now lives with his wife Jane. Since retiring from farming Russell has been involved in the farming community as the Beef Genetics Co-ordinator for Beef and Lamb New Zealand and is a part-time agricultural journalist. ( your latest issue of CountryWide magazine will no doubt carry one of his stories)

Russell’s outside interests include gardening, sport, working with wood and repair work.
