Bovine brokers (What do Livestock agents actually do?)

Welcome to the Cattle Station Classroom

In today’s lesson we are going to be learning about livestock agents. Most of us kind of know the basics of what a livestock agent does – buy and sell livestock – that bit is pretty obvious, but there’s a fair bit more to it and that’s why I wanted to do this episode.

To do this, I’ll be joined by Andrew Stewart, the Principal Livestock Agent for Northern Rural Supplies, in Broome, Western Australia. Andrew has 30 years as a livestock and realestate agent, 20 working in the Kimberley region.
