DAVID STOATE

DAVID STOATE

Chairman

I am from Anna Plains Station where I have lived for the past ten years with my wife and children. I have been involved in the formation of the Kimberley Pilbara Cattlemen’s Association in the role of Treasurer. In addition to attending to financial matters, I assisted in drafting the constitution and a number of other administrative responsibilities. I served a term on the Pastoral Lands Board and have also been involved in PGA committees. These experiences leave me well placed to continue the development of the Association.

Emma Salerno

Emma Salerno

Vice Chair

I am the Managing Partner of Salerno Law, a law firm with its head office in Kununurra and an office in Queensland. We represent pastoralists, farmers and rural clients all over Australia. I grew up on El Questro Station in the Kimberley. Myself and my brothers operate a pastoral business. With practical experience on the land, being a member of the cattle export industry and having a legal background, I am well placed to assist our industry to navigate an exciting but challenging time ahead. We have an abundance of opportunity within the northern regions of Australia and in particular, within the pastoral industry, if we are able to harness it. I am proud of the efforts of those who have laid the foundations for the KPCA and I am keen to assist in driving greater stakeholder value and establishing the KPCA as an innovative industry development body.

I have had a lifelong association to the beef industry through involvement as a pastoralist on my family properties in Western New South Wales and Western Queensland and now service the industry as a veterinarian. I am co-owner of Broome Cattle Vets and my role and the role of our company is to provide veterinary services to beef enterprises in the Kimberley and Pilbara including and not limited to reproductive assessment and management and herd health with the constant goal of improving levels of production. Furthermore I work with exporters to prepare the beef product they have purchased to ensure it fits the criteria of importing countries. I am passionate about our Northern beef industry and am excited by the opportunities that exist for producers to develop their production and solidify market chains. The KPCA can help play an important role in these developments and my skill set would bring to the table an external and balanced view which has been formed through working with both the producer and the exporter and also being exposed to trade within our domestic market.

I grew up on our families 80 Mile Beach property, Mandora Station and have always been in the cattle industry. I am now owner and manager of Yanrey Station and a partner in Hooley Station in the southern Pilbara Region. I own a transport company and cart cattle as part of our vertically integrated family business. I have always believed in the cattle industry and am interested in taking more of a leadership role. I’m passionate about keeping the right people in industry and providing support for innovative producers wanting to grow their businesses. Family operations are a key part of keeping the industry connected. The future of the cattle industry lies in vertical integration and working together more effectively. We have a progressive and dynamic industry and need to promote this more effectively. I also believe issues such as long haul transporting of cattle and preg testing on stations need to be talked about so we can find solutions and move forward for our industry. I am looking forward to working on behalf of the pastoralists as part of the Executive to make this happen.

My wife Jane and I run Yougawalla Pastoral Company taking in Yougawalla, Bulka, Margaret River Stations and sublease arrangements with Indigenous leases Louisa Downs, Lamboo and Carranya Stations. We also own Mandora Station south of Broome. We have been in the Kimberley for 10 years and I am passionate about the beef industry here and growing its future. I believe that we need strong representation as an industry and have been delighted to see the exceptional growth of the KPCA in recent years. I strongly believe that industry needs a loud, clear and united voice on issues such as red tape and bureaucratic malaise impeding development opportunities in the region, research and development projects to further our productivity and development of infrastructure projects to support the growth of the industry. These and the myriad of other concerns and day to day issues producers face can be represented well through a strong KPCA and I would like to be able to contribute.
