Reward and recognition for Warwick's top seeds

WARWICK rural supply business Pursehouse Rural has topped off 2017 with an impressive win at the recent Pacific Seeds Central and Southern Downs Agent Awards.

The business picked up an agent excellence award for its work in the region's cropping marketplace.

Manager Ben Ree said it was great to be recognised in such a way.

"Warwick has a smaller cropping base than our other stores in Allora, Clifton and Pittsworth, so it's a nice way to end a good year,” Mr Ree said.

"It was quite a good event, informal but a way for Pacific Seeds to thank its agents and a good chance to mix with others in the industry.

"It's also a good boost for our profile in the region in what is a very competitive market.”

The business has been operated out of Warwick for six years and, as manager for the past two years, Mr Ree said the firm had consistently being growing its presence here.

"Our market is mainly animal health - dips, drenches, vaccines and feed, being a large cattle and sheep area,” he said.

"But the seed side of the business is steadily growing and this award is a great recognition of that fact.”
