Talbalba Herefords

The disappointing departure of Michael Crowley to head MLA has made the current Herefords Australia Board election an important one. The benefit of having someone of the calibre of Michael as our CEO will only be realised if the programs he’s initiated are continued by the the Board. Ian Durkin and Marc Greening need to be returned to the Board as they are the leadership group who have been intimately involved with Michael’s initiatives, one of which, I believe, will be announced at the Breed Conference.
I also believe Tom Nixon will be a valuable addition to the Board. Tom and his brother run a broad based farming business which includes cropping, the Devon Court stud and a trading arm which targets Southern Qld feedlots. This knowledge and Tom’s involvement in leadership and genomic programs makes him a valuable addition to the board.
Voting papers have been sent via email or the post and are due by early next week.

I should add I wish Michael all the best with his new position.

michael will definately be sadly missed. i think it would be nice to have some breeders on there that can throw 100% behind the breed when that is the only breed they have

More important to get someone on the board who will look after the interests of Hereford breeders.(horned)

All six are very worthy candidates, great to see young people like Sam and Ben prepared to give their time, they are the future of the breed and need to be encouraged to take on these roles!!!

Endorse your comments as its highly Important to keep Stability with the current Board leadership team & wish Michael all the best in his new role!!
