Michael Pallesen

Springfield Manager

Starting out as a 15-year old, Mike has spent his life in the dairy industry.  Originally coming on board with BEL group in 2013 as a contractor, he has provided interim support and management across the dairy farms and support blocks, often filling in at management level to cover vacancies and annual leave. 

Having completed a spell at Springfield in 2015 as interim Manager, he then headed to dairy support as Stock Manager.  When the role of Springfield manager came up in 2017 Mike was the man for the job.  Mike is a leader and teacher who cares about his staff, his strength in pulling teams together to work towards group goals is invaluable.  He can be relied upon to clean up the mess, put systems in place and create a productive work atmosphere.
