"I was a neighbour of Murray Schaefer for 10 years at Manilla. The
rugged terrain of his 5000 acres of leased country called for good
horses and dogs.
He contact managed another 8000 acres for absentee Sydney owners and ran
a contract fencing and yard building business on the side. He built
numerous sets of yards and well over 500 km of fencing on many Northern
Murray was an outstanding horseman and had an excellent team of dogs and
was widely regarded as one of the district's best stockmen.
When he joined Metalcorp Steel in the early 90's we lost a good
neighbour but it is very gratifying to see him back in the Agricultural
Industry supplying what I think are the best valued and practical yards
on the market today".

" I hope to go back to the land one day.
Dad was a 5th generation farmer and I would like to contribute
to the family heritage. In the meantime I enjoy making a
valuable contribution to the business. Erecting yards, talking
with and learning from customers are the most satisfying parts
of the job. I also enjoy
spending time on my uncle's property at Walcha."

“We needed 2 sets of yards. I did my homework very carefully before
deciding on National Stockyard Systems. After purchasing the yards
Murray approached me and asked if I was able to assist with sales at
some Field Days.
I don’t see it as selling but it is a pleasure to have interaction with
a great team of people and demonstrating products I believe in”.

father Stuart is regarded as one of Manilla’s best operators.
“If I was just making the standard old panels and gates that are
available everywhere then I would not enjoy it. It is a really great
manufacturing team that I work with, and innovation, practicality and
quality of workmanship is encouraged in the factory. I really look
forward to assisting with sales as well”
