Good afternoon Bails Myer, distinguished guests and friends,
I am delighted to be speaking at your special event at your historic and beautiful property.
I’m sorry I can’t be with you Bails and your friends personally but send my greetings from New York.
Yulgilbar is indeed historic. It was Sam Hordern, previous owner of Yulgilbar, who helped to first introduce the great Santa Gertrudis breed to Australia, bringing them from America. I also hear that Yulgilbar’s Santa Gertrudis stud is the third oldest in Australia and the largest in New South Wales. Congratulations to Sarah, Bails and the Myer family and best wishes to the Yulgilbar team.
From shares in properties to then one then two properties, spreading from the Pilbara and dating back to the second half of the 1800’s, our family too has a continuous history in the cattle business. I loved my early life growing up on our then two stations in the then remote still rugged and hot Pilbara, goodness have we seen changes since I used to scramble up windmills with tools for my father!
