Local Ganmain farmers win Holden ute with Elders
Local Ganmain farmers Wes and Julie Kember are overjoyed after winning a Holden Commodore SV6 ute, just by buying fertiliser and selling sheep through their local Elders branch at Naranderra.
Wes and his wife Julie, who run the “Gleneith Park” stud located 10 kilometres south of Ganmain, have been Elders clients for more than 15 years and received an entry in the draw after buying fertiliser for their crops and also using Elders as agents to sell their sheep.
“The Branch Manager rang us from Elders to inform me that we’ve won the ute and I didn’t know he was fair dinkum or not until our stock agent rang later to confirm it,” Mr Kember said.
“All our stock work is done through Elders and we have been very happy with the service and now we are even happier,” he said.
“We’re currently driving a ute with around 240,000 kilometres on the clock, so the new ute will be a handy addition to the farm.”
Clients who made a qualifying transaction* on their trading account throughout the promotional period were automatically entered into the draw for a chance to win one of the iconic Australian-made vehicles, valued at $43,000 including on road costs.
Elders Naranderra Branch Manager, David Sergeant said Elders are committed to producers and it was great to assist a loyal customer.
“The Aussie ute is an essential tool of the trade when it comes to life on the land and it is great that Elders can now help a farmer in their business, just by doing business with us,” Mr Sergeant said.
“It’s particularly nice to be able to offer a long-term loyal client one of these great prizes to help them with their business,” he said.
*Qualifying transactions could be made through purchasing farm supply products, selling livestock or wool, new Rural Bank loan or deposit account or listing a property.
