Results of hard work on show

AFTER growing up on a farm, it seemed almost a given that Mark Davey would one day own his own station.

Mark and his wife Leonie have owned Lonemark Droughtmasters for eight years and said it was great to have an agricultural show right on their doorstep.

Just 10 minutes from his Lonemark property, Mark was exhibiting a few head of cattle at the three-day event.

“I’ve sold bulls through here, its good to get the name out,” he said.

While breeding cattle has always been a passion of Mark’s, he said it took constant work to succeed.

“It takes a lot of time if you want to do it right, it’s a seven day a week type of job,” he said.

But the Emerald man has the support of Leonie and six-year-old daughter Chloe.

Mark said Chloe enjoyed helping him prepare for Ag-Grow and said she loved taking part in the event.

“You gotta keep her out of the yard now, she’s keen as mustard,” he said.
