Introducing Michael Glasser
Presenting show cattle and 13 on property sales gave him a solid background on the Seed Stock Industry.
In 1986 he won a Scholarship to Michigan State University USA for Cattle Preparation. This is where the foundation of the Sales Management concept began for him.
Returning to Australia Michael was drawn to the Stock and Station Agency business to take up a passion for both the Seed Stock industry and Auctioneering.
Entering the industry in 1989 at Wodonga Vic he was able to watch, Learn and be mentored by some of the Greats of our industry, Tony Dowe, Kevin Norris and the late Bill Naughton. This gave him not only a great grounding but fuelled the passion to stand beside them.
Having seen many changes in the past 20 yrs of the industry through Genetics, Information Technology and Producer client relationships he feels the time is right, the Industry is not only seeking change but is demanding it.
The Sales Management system is simple, Offer the client the services they require and deliver a cost effective model that suits their individual needs.
Thanks to the support of my Wife Marion, Son Ty and Daughters Michaela, Abbey, & Annabel we look forward to a long & succesful assosiation with the Industry that is our life.
