I was looking to create a legacy for my children.Linda Hofsteede
Linda converted a 351 hectare property at Alford Forest, Mid Canterbury from finishing bulls and beef cattle to running an 820 cow milking herd.
"Converting to dairying was about building a sustainable business for my family. In the long run, the Co-operative model suits me best. I want to be part of the company that I supply. My Milk will enable me to achieve that goal."
