Vale Terry and Chris
We were saddened to hear of the recent passing of two former Cooperative employees. Terry Dodd worked as senior hand on our farm staff for just short of 43 years and retired in 2015. Terry was a key member of our collection and farm team and was a dedicated and loyal employee who not only was the first to be called on to handle the difficult bulls but was also instrumental in the development and maintenance of all the Cooperative properties. Our condolences go to his wife Heather and their family.
Chris Fielding was well-known and popular among the dairy farming community in Tasmania and worked part time in semen sales and offering breeding advice to dairy farmers across Tasmania from his home base in South Riana. More recently Chris was a key part of Van Diemen Genetics and his sudden passing was a shock to current and past colleagues as well as to the farmers where he was highly respected. Our thoughts and condolences go to his wife Jan and their family.
