Mike Weise, new General Manager of Jersey Australia
Jersey Australia’s board of management is delighted to announce that Mike Weise has accepted the role of General Manager.
Mike comes to Jersey Australia with 28 years of experience in the dairy industry in Australia, the UK and Ireland.
He started his career milking Jerseys, Shorthorns and Holstein Friesians and served as Executive Officer of WestVic Dairy, the Regional Development program funded by the farmers’ levy.
For the past three years he has been consulting to not-for-profit and agricultural organisations and serves as a director on three boards.
Now, Mike has decided to return full-time to his passion for dairy.
President of Jersey Australia Peter Ness said that Jersey Australia was fortunate to find an experienced dairy operator with sound financial knowledge, a successful track record of growing a member business (WestVic Dairy) and providing value to members. Mike has exceptional communication skills, strong leadership and organisational skills and a well-established network within Australia’s dairy industry
Mike says he is pleased to be back in the dairy family and looks forward to meeting with Jersey Australia’s existing members as well as looking for opportunities to grow the business.
He started as general manager of Jersey Australia last month and met Jersey Australia members at the Sydney Easter Show and will be meeting members at the Central Gippsland Autumn Fair (April 12) and the Jersey Australia AGM (May 18-20).
Mike managed an agricultural college herd in the UK which led into a teaching role at the college and, after five years, he won a 12-month exchange with an Australian agricultural lecturer.
His work history includes delivering services to the National Farmers’ Union in the UK and managing a team of Target 10 dairy extension officers.
The Jersey Australia board and its members would like to take this opportunity to welcome Mike to his position and we look forward to a long and prosperous relationship.

COMPETITION CLOSES MONDAY 7TH DECEMBER – NEXT WEEK!
Jersey Australia knows its members are fantastic photographers and our wonderful cow is the perfect model. So here’s a competition where we are calling on photographs that can show off our breed but in a fun and creative way. The guidelines are simple grab your camera (not mobile phone) head down the paddock, your local show, over your neighbours fence (if you don’t own Jerseys) and get snapping like a paparazzi!
The more you take and the more unusual or creative the better chance you have of getting noticed by the judging panel. Pick your favourite shots (upto 10 per entry) and send your photos which must contain at least one Jersey to email@example.com or to Jersey House PO Box 292, Ascot Vale 3032. All images must be at least 1Mb in size as the winning image will be used in Jersey Australia’s promotion of the breed in the coming year which kicks off at IDW in January 2016. Who knows your shot might just be worth $100 cash when all images are judged at the Jersey Australia Board meeting 9th December.
Great Jersey photos is what our dairy industry needs to see, so lets show them how proud we are of our legendary cow!
