Tribute paid to Breeding family

Property manager Kingsley Breeding (pictured) has recently ended his 33-year regime with Konetta Station, which adjoins the Princes Highway midway between Millicent and Kingston.

His long-time employer has been family-owned rural company A.J. and P.A. McBride Pty Ltd.

A family spokesperson has paid tribute to the Breeding family.

“We are extremely proud of our 102-year history and there is not much of that history which does not include a Breeding,” the spokesperson said.

“Vic (senior) and his sons Vic, Lindsay, Warren, Kingsley and Grant are stalwarts in our story.

“Kingsley started at A.J. and P.A. McBride Pty Ltd in 1978 on the property where he was raised, Teetulpa.

“He became overseer at Nepowie and Konetta, until he was appointed manager of Konetta in 1989.

“Kinga as he’s known to his staff is a true leader.

“First and foremost, he looks after his team and strives to develop them as well as always striving for excellence in animal production.

“Kingsley leaves a strong legacy at Konetta and will pass the reins to his assistant manager Romain Devaud.

“We take this opportunity to thank Kingsley for his service and dedication to A.J. and P. A. McBride Pty Ltd and especially to Konetta.”

Among his passions away from the farm was the Hatherleigh Football Club where he was a player and president.
