Newsletter - Spring 2017

Welcome to our warm spring newsletter.  Once again it seems to be the season for braking records, with the warmest winter on record in many areas. Let’s hope this helps for an early spring break for the northern half of our great country.  Speaking of great things reminds me of a conversation that I recently had with someone about a not so great product that they had purchased.  “I paid real money for this thing” he said pointing to the article, “and look at it – only fit for landfill”. 

Cow Paddock Display

Thompson Longhorn provided the RNA with one of our pneumatic restrainers - Monarch MkII - to be part of the Cow Paddock display at the 2017 Ekka. The display is aimed at entertaining the general public and showing real examples of cattle handling. This is a great initiative for reducing the gap between the city and the bush and allowing the city folks to see how cattle are handle and treated in a safe way.

Stock agents bid big for their 'headspace Hero'

headspace Albury-Wodonga was the beneficiary of the charity auction that fetched $11,000 for a 600-kilogram Angus steer.

Cattleyard builders Thompson Longhorn — which built the new yards — and the Albury-Wodonga Stock Agents Association went 50-50 on the purchase of the steer, dubbed “headspace Hero”.

Headspace contribution by Thompson Longhorn, mentioned in Federal Parliament

Watch a short video featuring Cathy McGowen mentioning the Thompson Longhorn donation to headspace through the opening sale of the new NVLX Northern Victoria Livestock Exchange (also known as the Wodonga Saleyards).
The opening sale fetching $11,000 for the sale of a single Angus steer, set a new record (50/50 contribution by Thompson Longhorn and the Albury-Wodonga Stock Agents Association). headspace Albury-Wodonga was the beneficiary.

Albury Wodonga Headspace was developed through a strong community approach to improve mental health for young people in the region. Independent Member for Indi, Cathy McGowan AO, tells Parliament about the success so far of the facility and the community support that continues to flow
