Louise Paltridge
Board Member Eight Mile Creek

Louise grew up on a small dairy farm just north of Melbourne. She went to school and university in Melbourne and was a research scientist in the field of molecular microbiology before meeting and marrying her dairyfarmer husband, Tom, and moving to Eight Mile Creek in SA.

Together they run the family farm, milking 400 pasture based dairy cows, raising dairy/beef cows and calves, and fattening steers. They have a 12 year old son, called Lachy. Louise is keen to help promote dairy farming as a vital part of South Australia’s future economic sustainability and food security.
