Fantastic to catch up with industry long distance runner David Friend at the Roma cattle sale this week.
Most people would know or have heard of “Friendy” whose career spans well over 50 years with a large portion being at Roma & Warwick centres.
Most people would know or have heard of “Friendy” whose career spans well over 50 years with a large portion being at Roma & Warwick centres. I can’t remember how many years David had with Primac all up…but quite a few, as well as private agency tenure for himself and others. He was in semi retirement mode, looking after a place south of Maryborough when the call came in from PJH Principal & Primac Guru Steve Goodhew to “PAD UP” again and help out for a three month stint back in Roma…that was about 12 months ago!!! As David said he didn’t have to think about it much as Roma has been very good to him over the years “Gets in your blood” and he and Steve have had a friendship over many decades. When the Saleyard responsibilities are done for the week David is free to pursue his Auction Plus services and quite often has sheep on the platform. A TOTAL all rounder who is not only Friend by name…but by his genuine nature….”CONGRATULATIONS” David on a fantastic career to date!
