Wallace Gunthorpe - Cows for Cambodia
When Queensland grazier Wallace Gunthorpe worked through a succession plan with his family, he found himself at a loose end. Rather than slip into retirement life spending his days playing golf, a trip to Vietnam led him into Cambodia where he heard about this Aussie bloke who was helping the Cambodian people through a ‘cow bank’. On his return to Australia, Wallace contacted that bloke - Cosi Costello, with an offer to help him with Cows for Cambodia and the rest as they say, is history. Wallace has become an integral part of Cows for Cambodia and I recently caught up with him to find out the part he plays in this amazing charity. Many thanks to Kennedy Livestock for their support in bringing you this interview.

"He was solution driven. The problem was just a small part of the equation", Tory Acton. Graeme Acton was a monumental man. He was a force to be reckoned with and one of the most influential figures in the cattle industry of our time. He had the ears of policymakers and great hope for the future of the beef industry. I remember when we heard the news that Graeme had been seriously injured in a campdrafting accident. The magnitude of his passing sent a tsunami of disbelief and sorrow which spread from the halls of Parliament House to the dustiest of paddocks in remote Australia - the part he loved the best. Graeme's business life and accolades have been well-documented but what was he like as a person and what did he most value throughout his life? Join me, in this very special interview, as I hear from Graeme's family who share with me the story of a husband and father.Many thanks to Stabler and Howlett Veterinary Surgeons for bringing this interview to you.

Each year, four of my special friends and I take some time to go away on what has become our annual ‘girls trip’. We have been to some wonderful places, had some amazing experiences and most importantly, spent a whole lot of time laughing. For me, there’s nothing like getting together with these women. This year, one of the girls decided we needed to find out what was in our own backyard and organised a weekend in our local town of Clermont. It was wonderful! From dining at some of the great restaurants and cafes in town to exploring our local museum and lagoon, we topped the weekend off with a hike to the top of one of the local peaks. If you haven’t already, I highly recommend looking at what your local region has to offer. You might just be incredibly surprised.
