Mick Alexander is a passionate believer that farmers are the solution to climate change and cows are the tool to sequestering carbon back into the soil in a natural cycle. Running a beef cattle property in central Queensland along with his wife and sons, Mick is proud to produce a sustainable, healthy product that consumers can feel good about enjoying.
Mick’s priority is to ensure he has healthy soils, because healthy soils lead to healthy plants which in turn lead to healthy animals which become healthy food for us all to enjoy.
In the past farmers and cows have been blamed for climate change but Mick sees farmers of the future as the solution to climate change.
Mick can see things working far better than they were a decade ago and his property is thriving.
