In 1985 William (Bill) Dunn, second generation Stock & Station Agency purchased into the business. Bill, born and bred in Forbes with the advantage of knowledge of the local area, the farmers, and their needs the business prospered. In 1993 Timothy Mackay jointed the partnership, also second generation stock & station agent was raised within the livestock industry, who’s father Peter Mackay still works in the local area today.

With the business expanding so did the office space, moving the business to new premises just up the road at 147 Lachlan Street, where they still operate today.
