Customer Case Study - Jackson Agri Investments
We travelled to northern NSW to meet Michael 'Jacko ' Jackson on his farm at Guyra, 30 minutes north of Armidale.
Having grown up in the area, Michael and his wife Wendy have achieved great success in farming. They own two prominent cattle studs which have won a number of awards including the Supreme Beef Exhibit at Rockhampton Beef, the largest cattle show in the world.
Jacko explains how he has taken his farming operation and diversified into real estate, fuel supply, horse racing, and exporting to Asia.
When it comes to identifying opportunities, Michael believes the best thing is to simply say hello to people and find out about what they do. It's this mantra which now sees him actively involved in Asia, including working as a consultant to Chinese farms.
You'll hear about his desire for new challenges and how the personal relationship he has with his Agribusiness Banker has helped him grow and follow his passions.
