Phil explains his background in poultry and what skills he brings to Reid's customers.
Studying a Bachelor of Agricultural Science at Latrobe University Bundoora, Amabel joined us over the Summer to observe the practices of a ruminant nutritionist and to undertake a series of work projects.
Q1. What have you enjoyed most about your time in Australia? The experience as a whole. From the time spent as a Master’s Student at Melbourne University, the people that I’ve met from all around the world, the culture, the restaurants, the farms and the farmers….all of it. Of course, the cherry on top of [...]
Thanks Angie for 10-years holding down the fort of Gippsland's administration. In Rosli Reid's own words; "Angie has a special rapport with our customers. She knows our customer base exceptionally well not only due to her longevity with us but also because of her own dairy farm together with husband Scott. We greatly appreciate that Angie has stuck [...]
Trafalgar Shorty was promoted to Production manager, congratulations on the deserving appointment. Lucas Jenkinson joined our team. Lucas is playing football this year for Yallourn North and already training hard. A first home purchase is also on the cards and an early nomination for 2016’s “best boyfriend” awards. Addam Whitehead is back at work after breaking [...]
Interview with Cobden Nutritionist Nicolas Pineda Six months ago we were wrapped to have Colombian Nicolas Pineda join our nutritional service team. He brings a wide knowledge of livestock farming and it’s a great honour to have him as part of the team. I sat down with him recently to find out more about his interesting [...]
L to R: Cobden Millers, Peter & Jarrod Duynhoven hoist aloft the Reid Stockfeeds Top Tippers trophy. It takes a big mitt. The final wash-up of footy tipping, saw the last “hard-earned” cleaned up by; […]
L to R: Murray (indicating how much he’ll miss Simone), Daniel (performing an Elvis tribute dance), Corey (hiding behind Trev), Trev, Simone, Peter, Kelly, Chloe & Dave. Simone Nelson finished up with Reid Stockfeeds Cobden as of last Friday (Oct 9th). We wish Simone well in taking on her new role [...]
Today we farewelled Belinda and Natasha as they make their way in new careers. Bee has been with the business for eight years across roles in the mill and finally as site supervisor. Tash provided technical services to our customers in the central/eastern areas of Gippsland. Both girls were popular members of the team and we [...]
Brilliant opportunity for a self motivated individual with a love for dairy and eastern Gippsland to try their hand at increasing our presence in this competitive but scenically beautiful marketplace with many friendly, down-to-earth customers. Encouraged but not essential to have; 3-5 years sales experience, understand dairy production systems, easy communicator, and great reporting/record keeping abilities. [...]
My o my. How the wheel has turned. The bunker rat must’ve eaten some poisoned grain this week and tumbled from the top of the pile. Mokey Dokey has walked a long road from the high twenties into pole position, well done. Congratulations to Kelly Slattery who wins the $90 prize for best tipping result in [...]
Some things never seem to change from year to year. The news reports cold/hot weather spells as if it’s the very first time we’ve seen it and just when commentators are reporting anyone can win the premiership from #1-#6, the defending premier wipes the floor with its nearest contender. Whispers are circulating that Langa like [...]
Langa and MokeyDokey are clearly swapping tipping secrets, having risen from the "also rans" to command number #2 & #3 respectively. Mokey Dokey is ready for a strike on pole position drawing level with Lachie Sutherland on 49 a piece (separated by accumulated Friday night margins).
Congratulations to Trev and all the Cobden staff who earned “Business of the Month” in the Connecting Cobden Newsletter. Not sure how stiff the competition was but the acknowledgment is nice all the same. Below is the article as it appeared in the Cobden Business Network publication; Reid Stockfeeds Cobden Staff (L to R): Trevor [...]
Round 6 Update: Lachie Sutherland continues to peer down on everyone with superior margin to Zimbo. Mick "The Chook Man" Duggan (who by the way runs a tight little operation called Westend Hens out of Warrnambool) squawked his way to third drop. Round 6 had money on the line for the top tipper and this [...]
Round 5 Update: A spread is starting to open up between #1 & #10. Lachie Sutherland takes pole position for the first time. Mokey Dokey continues his relentless push from the bottom to the top and Freddy Walsh must've had inside word on the Dogs with a flawless round. Apparently that earns you a free [...]
This year we’re launching a company wide tipping competition. The only criteria? That you’re a current customer, supplier or employee. Easy peesy. […]
