Holman Tolmie Pty Ltd - Garry James
Holman Tolmie opened its doors in 1982, when Rod Holman and Steve Tolmie felt the Cootamundra district needed a new private stock & station agency to service local livestock producers.
Starting out in the middle of the 1982-83 drought made for challenging beginnings, but with hard work, determination and loyal clients, the business grew rapidly.
In 1994 Holman Tolmie welcomed Cootamundra local Garry James to the team. Following Rod’s retirement in 2003, Garry became a Director of the business. In 2013 Corey Nicholson joined Holman Tolmie, and then in 2015 he became a shareholder in the business.
Over the past four decades, Holman Tolmie has grown to employ 10 full and part time employees, selling sheep and cattle out of the Cootamundra saleyards each fortnight.
Recently, the business expanded into new markets to give clients broader buying and selling options. Holman Tolmie is one of the founding agents at the newly established South Eastern Livestock Exchange (SELX), based just off the Hume Highway on the western side of Yass. We have kept up to date with the growth of the digital marketplace, now also trading on Auctions Plus.
On top of these exciting new advancements, we still provide direct sales of livestock to feedlots and abattoirs across the eastern seaboard, as well as the major supermarkets Woolworths and Coles.
