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 the 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.
