About Russ: 

A seventh-generation farmer, Russ Fowler’s family have been running their farm in Bothwell, Tasmania since 1825. With 8,500 acres, 18,500 sheep, and 130 cows, Russ has his hands full running and growing the family business. Russ considers himself a caretaker of the family farm and with a young family to care and provide for, Russ is determined to build a sizeable business to support the next generation and continue the legacy of his heritage. His passion for working dogs began from a young age. With only five staff to help him run the farm and the extreme challenges of seasonal shifts, worker shortages and fluctuating prices, his pack of dogs take on a fair bit of the workload.
