About the speakers

Bobby Miller

Farmer and Ruminati co-founder, Bobby Miller, boasts over two decades of commercial experience in corporate real estate and as the owner and operator of Coolac Cattle Company. Managing his family’s 4,250-hectare property ‘Cooininee’ in Coolac, Bobby oversees a self replacing Angus herd of 2000 cows with half joined to Wagyu for the F1 market. 

Bobby is passionate about supporting farmers and graziers across Australia to track agricultural emissions and showcase their climate stewardship to the supply chain. His vision is that by democratising the emissions reporting process through the Ruminati platform, Australian producers can access the tools they need to not only create an emissions baseline but tell their own sustainability story and pinpoint both their progress and areas needing improvement.

Combining technical knowledge with a farmer’s perspective, Bobby is dedicated to championing farmer-led sustainability practices within the agricultural industry.
