THE newest addition to the Bowyer and Livermore Livestock team, Conor Lamond, said he is excited to work with clients in the Cowra, Canowindra and surrounding areas.
Local to the area, Conor grew up working with livestock on the banks of the Lachlan River at Billimari.
"My parents were in the dairy industry, so I was around cattle from birth," he said, adding he became more involved in livestock during a cadetship in 2015.
"I was able to spend time in Central Queensland and southern NSW and, for over two years, I was based in the mid-north of South Australia as a full time livestock agent.
"The contacts that I have made in the different areas of the country really do help when it comes to sourcing livestock and being able to market livestock in different states."
Conor said no two days are alike when it comes to being a livestock specialist.
"Whether it is a paddock sale job, drafting stock for market, weighing lambs for a hooks job or canvassing new business.
"Each day is different which I love about being an agent," he said, adding it was a thrill to work alongside and interact with producers every day.
"Working to get the best possible outcome for my client's livestock is something I take great pride in.
"Knowing that at the fall of the hammer, when the livestock leave the property for slaughter, or to another producer - that I have worked my absolute hardest to make sure that it is the best outcome for the client," he said, adding he was proud to be working with the team at Bowyer and Livermore, servicing the Cowra and Canowindra area.
"They are a great team who have a stellar reputation in the agency business and amongst livestock buyers." Conor said he hoped his new appointment would to bring even more energy and enthusiasm to the Bowyer and Livermore Livestock team.
"With my knowledge in beef cattle and sheep production as well as being able to correctly market their livestock, I believe will be beneficial to my clients."
As for current market trends, Conor said he believed the forecasted summer rains would strengthen confidence going into 2021.
"Especially if the pastoral areas of South Australia, North-western NSW and south western Queensland receive good falls of rain," he said.
With potential for positive market returns over the coming months, Conor said he is encouraging producers to reach out to him.
"[We can] have a confidential discussion about their business, trading opportunities, forward contracts, paddock sales, buying in breeding ewes or cattle and any other question they have."
