The article features Jason Phillips, who runs his own herd of 440 dairy cows in Great Britain. He has also worked as a general labourer on two dairy farms within 25 miles of his home, since the family business was not big enough to support both him and his brother, when they were growing up. Eventually, through a contract farming agreement, he was offered the opportunity to run a local dairy farm in England. He also provides tips on getting in the dairy sector.
