CHRIS PATMORE TAKES PGA LIVESTOCK REINS FROM DIGBY STRETCH
The Pastoralists and Graziers’ Association has appointed Chris Patmore to replace Digby Stretch as PGA Livestock Committee Chair.
Bindi Murray was endorsed to continue as Vice Chair and will support Chris in his role.
Chris Patmore is a sheep farmer whose property encompasses Eneabba, Morawa and Perenjori, where he runs his 10,000 hectare farm with his wife Robyn. Chris has been an active member of the PGA since 1997 and will be a great asset to the organisation and the livestock industry.
PGA President Tony Seabrook said Chris enjoyed widespread respect in the PGA and whilst he has served on the PGA Executive since 2013 it was pleasing to see him “step up” to take the role of Committee Chair.
“It is great to see capable people coming forward and that is a trend I intend to foster,” he said.
Tony Seabrook also paid his respect to outgoing Chair, Digby Stretch who has been the Livestock Committee Chair since 2010.
“Digby’s leadership over the past six years has been greatly appreciated by all involved in the PGA and the industry in general,” Mr Seabrook said.
Digby Stretch will continue his role in the PGA as Vice President and remain a member of the Livestock Committee. This move will enable Digby to dedicate more time to the PGA supporting the President in his role as Vice President.
