Ned has thirty five plus years of practical experience in agriculture. Starting off in livestock husbandry, he has used his uncanny ability to retain information to become a virtual encyclopedia of all the required agronomic inputs. Using his broad range of contacts within the wholesale industry, if there is something you need urgently, or that may be a little left field, Ned will get it – no matter what is required! If there are two words that sum up what Ned brings to agriculture they are “passion” and “commitment”.
His career in livestock started as a Jackaroo in central west Queensland. He arrived in Kojonup with his future bride, Jill, in 1982. Some say Kojonup has never been the same since!! Renowned for his “can do” approach, Ned started off doing the hard yards owning and working a sheep husbandry business. When opportunity knocked in 1993, he hung up the drench gun and hand piece to become a partner in Kojonup Agricultural Supplies. He has worked continuously since then striving to ensure that the farmers and residents of Kojonup and surrounding districts get the merchandise they want when they want it.
Ned’s passion for agriculture has overflowed into the support of his beloved Dockers. For those of us that dare to go for another team – Monday mornings seem to go for a long time!
