Jill joined the Feed Central team this Mid 2020 in the role of Client Services Coordinator. She will be the point of contact for all matters relating to the website and is there to help keep grower’s information accurate, up to date and looking attractive for our buyers.
Jill comes originally from WA, with most of her farming experience being achieved over 20 years as co-owner and manager of an intensive Horticulture property in Kununurra on the Ord River Irrigation Area. During this time she managed contract picking, packing, marketing and logistics for up to 50 local producers over 5 crops. She has many years’ experience in group marketing with Australian Fresh Mangoes, Australian Outback Mangoes and was a member of various peak industry bodies. QA systems such as Freshcare, SQF2000, NAASA, CACCP, Eurepgap and later with ISO 9000 will give her a good understanding of the Feed Central program.
When not at work Jill enjoys snow skiing, sailing and spending time with her family.
Kimberley grew up on a small property surrounded by cattle and poultry most of her life. She has always had a passion for agriculture. This passion led her to complete a Bachelor of Science, with an extended major in Animal and Veterinary Bioscience through the University of Queensland. Kimberley joined the Feed Central team in 2019 and is now our Quality Assurance Coordinator. Kimberley spends an extensive amount of time analysing the nutritional composition of feed samples, speaking with clients about their results, and liaising with our Dairy One partners to constantly monitor and improve our lab calibrations and capabilities. She is focused on providing Feed Testing results that will help source feed suitable to meet livestock production targets.
Jeff takes great pride in keeping our Charlton depot running smoothly, and ensuring our clients are well looked after along with his keen eye on the safe storage and dispatch of Feed Central’s products. But that’s not all – Jeff keeps the Feed Central’s lawns and surrounds looking its best.
New to the work force, Jusinta has recently graduated from Highfields State Secondary College, where she fell in love with agricultural science through her studies. With her best childhood memories made on her Grandparent’s farm in Millmerran, the country has always felt like home to Jusinta. She is currently handling reception and administration duties; however, because of Jusinta’s keen interest in science, she is having one-on-one training with Kimberley in the lab. Jusinta looks forward to speaking with you on the phone and preparing your samples for testing!
