Quality hits the South East
BORDERTOWN provided the backdrop as a rare opportunity to was taken to bring the Quality Group's South Australian and Victorian‑based wool and livestock teams together earlier this month in SA's South East.
An influx of more than 25 members of the group congregated in the town for a two‑day conference, with Quality representatives coming from as far and wide as Broken Hill, Bendigo and Wirrabara to take part.
Attendees took part in a range of activities, including visits to some of Bordertown's most iconic institutions.
The events kicked off on Wednesday night (14th June) as the group assembled and enjoyed the hospitality on offer at the Mundulla Hotel, gathering for dinner and drinks.
Group photos at Tolmer Park on Thursday morning were followed by a tour through JBS’s plant on Meatworks Rd, witnessing first‑hand the sophisticated technology used to process up to 8,000 smallstock per day at the facility.
Thursday afternoon was reserved for presentations and a group think tank, as the gathering listened to updates from Managing Director Mark Dyson, Wool Trading Manager Brett Woods, Livestock Representative David Whittenbury and Social Media Manager Kane McKay, followed by a group workshop to brainstorm upcoming marketing initiatives.
The conference also provided an opportunity to welcome new team members into the fold, with Wool Representatives Graham Duffield and Ian Baker and Livestock Representative Dylan Ruiz all joining Quality recently.
Quality Managing Director Mark Dyson said the trip was an invaluable opportunity to visit a region that’s a stronghold for the company, with six representatives servicing the area across wool and livestock.
