Mayor seeks Livestock SA role

Retiring Robe Mayor Alison Nunan was one of the eight nominees for the board of Livestock SA.

The annual online election ended on Monday (August 15) and the five successful candidates will be announced at the Livestock SA conference in the Adelaide Hills later this month.

The other candidates keen to represent Livestock SA’s 3500 members included Lucindale’s Anthony Hurst and Furner’s Richie Kirkland.

Each candidate provided a personal statement with Mayor Nunan stating she had been fortunate to have had a long involvement in agriculture.

“Raised on a farm, educated in science, worked in the industry as a research assistant and then as an agronomist in the early 1990s, I have been involved in a number of different facets in agriculture,” Mayor Nunan said.

“For the past 30 years I have worked alongside my husband Bradley in our commercial mixed farming enterprise, Hilton Rural Trading near Robe.

“We have recently expanded our business to include a small station near Hawker, giving us different challenges and perspectives to those we face in the South East.

“I am currently the Mayor of Robe District Council which has been an interesting and challenging journey.

“It has given me some good insights and skills which I hope to bring to the Livestock SA Board.

“The livestock industry faces a period of great change and I would like to be part of an organisation that helps guide that change.”

Mayor Nunan’s term as Mayor ends in early November.
