Western Victoria Regional Committee
Regional Chair – Ben Young
Ben is co-director and manager of ‘Chiltern Park’, a prime lamb and Angus beef operation at Macarthur, Victoria.
Ben is passionate about lifting productivity and improving profits by implementing improved pasture grazing systems, as well as increasing meat quality and animal welfare standards. He has substantially expanded the family business through increased stocking rates, purchasing and also leasing land – the latter currently making up 50% of the business – giving him a strong understanding of the challenges that young producers face.
Ben is a strong proponent of profitable and sustainable farming practices and seeks to provide the best RD&A outcomes for Western Victoria. He is also a strong believer in providing young people with the tools and opportunities to succeed in agriculture. Ben has been actively involved in the Victorian Betterbeef program and Grasslands Society of Southern Australia.
