Ben McHugh
Board Member

I am a 3rd generation dairy farmer at Mt Compass, I work with my wife Katie in a family partnership with my Brother David & sister- in -law Jane and our parents Kym and Heather. I have 3 boys Tom, Henry & Sam. I have been involved in the dairy industry for 16 years.

We milk 300 Jersey Cows in an all year round calving herd. We also run a cropping enterprise at Finniss which we grow Hay, Wheat, barley, Lupins, Beans & Canola for our dairy & other markets.

I completed a Diploma of Agriculture with TAFE in 2010. I was on the SADA board for 2 years in 2014 & 15 before the board restructure. I have been on the board for 1 year & sitting on the Dairy SA board as the SADA rep.
