Haley is a product of the Kerang school system, firstly attending the Kerang Christian Community School through infants and primary, where her mother thought that it would make a better person out of her, and when that failed she was sent on to the Kerang High School.
Haley suggests that she was pretty normal at school, behaved in class and even pretended to do her homework, and grew up under two older brothers as ‘one of the boys’. Motorbikes, cars and animals figured prominently in her formative years, and central to this was her growing love of horses.
As soon as Haley could own one she did, and went a step further and started to play polocrosse when she was 16, and has graduated to now be the Secretary of the Barkool Polocrosse club.
After leaving school she started on a journey in work, dabbled in graphic design for a while, worked as a Vet nurse and a Nurses registration before heading out back to Fitzroy Crossing on a station called ‘Fossil Downs’ as a Jillaroo.
After getting tired of kicking fossilised rocks around, mustering jittery steers and searching for lost English tourists she decided to come home, and took a job in Rural Merchandise.
Since coming to us Haley has fitted in like a finger in a glove, and has shown a real liking for the animal side of things, especially ruminant nutrition and says that learning and the pathways that open out in front of her are the most exciting part of being at BR&C.
So if you’re having some issues with your animal nutrition it might be time to give Haley a quick yell.
