2017 Otago Regional Supreme Winners

Simon and Kirstin Engelbrecht's 7500 stock unit East Otago sheep and beef business is based on their 611ha home farm, Stoneburn, near Palmerston.

This winter Simon is planning on running 3700 coopdale ewes, 1200 hoggets, 1430 fattening lambs, 120 breeding heifers and cows, 176 R2 fattening cattle and rams and bulls for breeding. However, a key to the Engelbrecht’s farming policy is a willingness to make changes to ensure production is maximised and the soil and environment is protected.
