Garry Todd has been an LBRCA member for more than 15 years. Garry and his wife Dorothy live in Gollan, just outside of Dubbo in Western NSW.
I started in the industry working for Pioneer for 30 years carting hot mix for the M4 and then for the Mascot airport. Once the tar dried on those jobs, I moved to Yass carting more hot mix before buying and running my own 2000-acre farm at Goolma.
After that I took a job carting livestock and other commodities for local farmers and transport operators like Thompsons Livestock Transport, in the regional area.
Right now…. I’ve downgraded to a 70-acre farm at Goolma, cart grain for local farmers around the area and drive the local school bus one-day a week. I also throw a great deal of my time towards my volunteer roles as Secretary, Treasurer and Deputy Captain in the local Rural Fire Services. I’ve been working with Bec in the Secretariat to get a few local roads improved that will benefit both trucks and buses.
My favourite food and drink: Coke, Roast Lamb
My favourite TV shows are Channel Nine news and A Current Affair (ACA).
I joined the LBRCA because 15 years or more ago Ian Penderedsuggested I join to the help the cause of the bulk sector. I’ve been a member since.
I support the LBRCA because they are all about improving our industry. They put councils on notice, they are passionate about industry and they take the time to listen. Without the association I don’t think we would be where we are today.
I support LBRCA sponsors because they look after us. After attending the LBRCA Annual Conference in Dubbo back in 2017 I switched my health insurance to Westfund Health Insurance. I’m very happy with Westfund and glad to support a local, regionally based company. They have an office in Dubbo and get great service when you go in there.
