Dave was born and raised on a farm near Cooma. After running the family farm and contract shearing with his brothers, he studied Agribusiness at Marcus Oldham College, Geelong. Upon graduating, he joined Australian Wool Network (AWN) as a Wool Broker, working in their Sydney office and later in Goulburn. In late 2009, Dave left AWN to pursue his own business interests and established, ‘Farm Needs A Farmer’.
Dave is now a full-time farmer, running three merino sheep enterprises; one based at Cooma and two around Goulburn. Dave joined Moses & Son in January 2011 as a Wool Auctioneer.
In his spare time, Dave enjoys running the properties, playing tennis, skiing, reading and spending time with his wife Skye and son, Digby.
