Sheep and goat assessor joins Simstock team

SIMSTOCK, the locally-owned and operated independent Livestock and Property Agency servicing Longreach and surrounding districts, this week announced that Andrew Hacker has joined the team.

Owner of Simstock, Richard Simpson says his company offers personal client service with local and national market insight and has established relationships across vast networks.

“We are a progressive agency,” Mr Simpson said, “and in recent tough times we have continued to strive and adjust our marketing strategies to ensure our clients needs are well met.”

He said Andrew’s role will be to assess sheep and goats for Auctions Plus, as well as sheep and cattle private sales. It is anticipated that accreditation for Cattle Auctions Plus Assessment will come in the future.

Andrew and his wife, Sally, co-purchased the local property ‘Hazelwood’ in 2018 and have since made it home with their two young boys, Will and Charlie. They run a mixed sheep and cattle enterprise that consists of Merino Ewes and Angus Cross cattle.

Andrew grew-up on a mixed grazing and farming property that was involved in sheep, cattle and dryland cropping 50km west of Roma. His family connections still continue to operate the ‘Roselea’ Merino Sheep Stud.

After leaving school, he completed a Bachelor of Agriculture Science at the University of Queensland. Prior to moving to Longreach they lived in Roma where Andrew managed a livestock and irrigation enterprise for a large corporate company.

Andrew has a keen interest in the sheep and cattle industry, having grown-up with it over his entire life, and enjoys working with clients to gain the best return for their product.
