Dr Gundi Rhoades

Veterinarian, cattle farmer and author

Dr Gundi Rhoades was born in Germany and studied veterinary medicine in Hannover.

After qualifying as a veterinary surgeon, she moved to England where she worked in small animal and mixed practices for 7 years. She moved to Australia in 1998, married a beef cattle farmer, passed her Australian Veterinary Examination and had three children. During the last 20 years in Australia she ran the farm with her husband breeding Angus bulls, which is now and organic farm. She started her own mixed animal practice in 2002 and has grown this to be a successful clinic in Inverell, NSW. She has always worked full-time as a veterinarian, treating pets as well as horses, cattle, sheep or goats. She is comfortable in the operating theatre and also in the cattle yards pregnancy testing cows all day long. While doing all of what ‘normal vets’ do, her special focus is on nutritional medicine.

During her years as a veterinarian and farmer, she has developed a keen interest in soil, health of animals and people, and has ‘connected the dots’ of disease, dead soils and chemical farming.

Her extensive medical knowledge is combined with her deep understanding of regenerative farming and soil health. She discovered that chemical farming destroys the soil which synthesizes our ‘building blocks for life’, what chemicals like Roundup or 2,4 D do to environment and our bodies, and how this is translated into a ‘tsunami of modern diseases’.

Diseases like asthma, autism, depression, cancer, autoimmune disease, thyroid problems, endometriosis, polycystic ovary problems, diabetes and so forth.

She wrote a book ‘The Food Solution’ in which she describes concepts of nutritional deficiencies, chemical poisoning, gut health, gluten intolerance, the vegan myth or how cattle can destroy -or save!- the planet.  This book is accompanied by a Podcast with the same name (by Gundi Rhoades) and a podcast which is called Body and Soil by Gundi Rhoades.

Dr Terry McCosker

Farmer, international teacher and change maker in the agricultural industry

As a nationally renowned innovator, speaker and educator in regenerative agriculture, Terry McCosker needs little introduction. He has had an inordinate impact on agricultural practices both in Australia and around the world over many years.
