A wholly locally Owned business
Halcroft and Bennett’s current owner David Thompson was born and bred at Corryong on the Victorian border. His grandfather, Errol Scammell, was a Stock and Station Agent and so the seed was sown for David’s life commitment to livestock and agency work.
On leaving school, David began his career in the agency game, working for AML&F in Melbourne. He worked at the Newmarket Saleyards, in export, and at the wool stores.
In 1981 he transferred to Dubbo and so began his affiliation with the “North West”. After 5 years in Dubbo, he took a position as stockman with Halcroft & Bennett. From head stockman he moved on to become a partner in the business and eventually buying the business outright in 1998.
