Greg (Whippy) Smith was a livestock export industry stockperson who also worked for decades in Indonesia, becoming fluent in Bahasa and supporting small farmers working with imported Australian cattle with sensible, practical advice on looking after the livestock.
He was involved in a wide range of projects for the industry in Indonesia, establishing feedlots, providing training, and conducting supply chain audits.
Greg passed away in April 2021 following an accident while discharging a vessel in Indonesia, leaving behind his wife, adult daughter and teenage sons Tristan and Brody. He was 59 years old.
The Greg Smith Family Trust has been set up to support the ongoing education of the boys, including the opportunity to attend university if they wish.
The auction will be conducted during the LIVEXchange gala dinner with auctioneer Tony Bowen of Nutrien Ag Solutions.
