You may have seen Jacob Gaske around in the past, as he has been working as a casual for Hayes and Co for a little over a year now.

Richard has excellent knowledge across all cattle categories from Weaners and Backgrounders, Feeders, Trade and Slaughter cattle as well as Bulls and Breeders. As a fully licenced agent he will also be working with clients in the Rural and Residential Property sector. Peter is a big believer in providing jobs for locals and investing in training.
