WA’s leading lamb and beef processor has added large-scale management experience to its team, with the appointment of Paul Gault to the livestock procurement division.

Co-owner Peter Walsh said V&V Walsh was entering an exciting period of expansion, as it continued to increase its livestock processing capacity and grow new markets locally and around the world.

Mr Walsh said the appointment of Mr Gault would help to facilitate the company’s motivation for increased supply into domestic and export markets.

“Paul is a prominent figure in the WA livestock industry and will add to the V&V Walsh group through his experience and track record in overseeing massive livestock logistics programs and sheep feedlotting,” he said.

Mr Walsh said the livestock procurement team at V&V Walsh was taking a strategic and longer-term approach to the lamb supply base of the business.

“Paul is relationship focused and will be working with livestock agents and growers across the State to implement supply options between growers and V&V Walsh,” he said.

“V&V Walsh is one of the largest, most respected meat processors and exporters in Australia. We are proud to have been a WA family-owned and operated business since 1957.

“We can process 3800 sheep per day — approximately half of this is boned and packed on-site in Bunbury — plus 400 cattle per day, with the ability to bone and process 300 beef carcases per day.”

V&V Walsh is offering trade lamb forward contracts for May delivery, and sourcing store lambs.
