Two ‘townie’ office workers win dairy award

Rural Exchange 20/05/2018

To leave a secure office job and become a sharemilker at the age of 32 would be mad - wouldn't it? Well, not for Dan and Gina Duncan.

Six years ago the couple decided they needed a lifestyle change and became 50:50 sharemilkers for the Pouto Topu A Trust.

The former registered valuers won't be looking back after becoming the 2018 Share Farmers of the Year.

Judges called them "passionate, professional and committed" at Invercargill's ILT Stadium last Saturday night, and Mr Duncan joined Rural Exchange to shed some light on why.

Watch the full interview with Dan Duncan above.
