It was with great sadness and heavy hearts that yesterday we said farewell to our patriarch Rod.

Rod dedicated his life to his family and his farm.

From a young age Rod had a passion and love for Poll Dorset sheep and Poll Hereford cattle. He spent his time striving for the best for both his own farm and the breeds, and his stock were his pride and joy.

If he wasn’t driving around his paddocks Rod could be found on the side of a sporting field or court handing out constructive criticism to Ange, Sal and Brad and more recently his grandchildren. Rod loved sitting around a dinner table with family and friends enjoying a laugh and a good glass of red, fishing by the waterhole at Wrattenbullie and sitting on the back deck with Gayle enjoying a drink.

Forever in our hearts ????

The family ask that in lieu of flowers a donation be made to either the RFDS or the Leukaemia Foundation.
