SIR Graham McCamley and Peter Camm of Camm Cattle Company enjoyed a dinner at the Marlborough hotel last Tuesday to seal the deal for Glenprairie Station.
Peter Camm told the North Queensland Register that he regarded Sir Graham McCamley as his mentor.
“I could not speak more highly of such a great man,” he said.
Peter also said without the assistant of his lawyer Barry Taylor, Emanate Legal he felt the deal would not have got off the ground.
Peter Camm and Barry Taylor put together a deal in record time that saw Camm purchase Sir Graham McCamley’s Glenprairie Station, Marlborough, for an undisclosed sum prior to auction.
Taylor has represented national sporting entities and News Limited in the long running and complex litigation surrounding the Super League case, which necessitated appearances and representation for the Federal Court, Full Federal Court, and High Court of Australia.
He has also represented major media corporations in defence of and restriction of exposure to defamation actions, human resources and intellectual property.
While Taylor has a long list of career highlights, what he is best known for in the pastoral industry is providing advice and strategy for the largest rural acquisitions in Australia, including Stanbroke Pastoral Company and Georgina Pastoral Company.
He has also represented graziers and rural landowners in claims for compensation arising out of mining leases.
The purchase of Glenprairie will help the Camm Cattle Company realise its ambition to produce organic cattle.
Peter said their ambition would be to have Glenprairie as a feedlot for cattle up to 200 days, which would allow them to turn off 1000 organic cattle a month within the next three years.
Cull cows and weaner heifers will be sent from Chudleigh Park – Camm Cattle Company’s Hughenden property – directly to Glenprairie, he said.
