February 2012

Agistment.net.au was founded by David Birchmore in 2012. David had experienced first-hand the difficulties associated with finding and filling agistment, and felt that there had to be a more current way to allow graziers to get in touch.




David grew up on his parents' cattle property in the Winton district, and upon completing his schooling returned to assist his parents with the running of their properties. Since that time he has built his own cattle herd, though like many graziers, the potential growth of his herd has been constrained by the availability of agistment.

In 2006 David moved 'north' to run the families' breeding property outside of Richmond, before moving back to the Winton district in 2009 to take over the responsibility of the sale of cattle from the family properties.

David along with his wife Sarah and daughters Louise & Clare run their own herd of Droughtmaster cattle on agistment in the Charters Towers District.
