A southern Queensland dairy farmer, named the 2014 Dairy Farmer of the Year, calls himself a 'depression survivor'.

During his recovery significant changes were made to the dairy business. The farm had been milking 120 cows using a 10-aside, herringbone dairy but, in 2010, moved to a robotic system using three robots.

Greg Dennis, of Scenic Rim 4 Real Milk, expects his investment in dairy robotics will have paid for itself in six years. At around $125,000 a unit, the price of mechanical milking may be prohibitive for struggling Queensland dairy farmers but there are efficiencies to be gained...

Beaudesert Times congratulates Dairy Farmer
of the Year

Farmer Greg Dennis made front page of the local paper the "Beaudesert Times" after he was awarded Dairy Farmer of the year. Mr Dennis, who was also a finalist in the awards last year, said he was thrilled with the win. "It was a bit surreal and quite humbling but at the same time a real thrill," he said.

"It'll definitely give me a stronger platform to be able to keep doing what I do, which is educating people and communicating with people from the cities and towns."

Mr Dennis said he could not have done it without the support of his family on the farm.

Scenic Rim dairy farmers going strong after branching out on their own
The Dennis family set up Scenic Rim 4 Real Milk last year after negotiations failed with the big milk companies. The family decided to go it alone and produce, process, bottle and distribute their own milk from Tamrookum near Beaudesert. Greg Dennis said it took eight months to set up the company and be able in a position to legally sell milk to the consumer.
