Buy a Bale ‘Dress like a Farmer’ Day

In mid-October we held a ‘Dress like a Farmer Day’ which included a BBQ lunch and some refreshing beverages thrown in for good measure! Everyone donned their flannel shirts and Blundstones to raise money for the Buy a Bale drought appeal ( and do our bit for drought relief.

The team from Plant Assessor raised $510 and the Directors of the business kindly matched this allowing us to send a cheque for $1020 to Rural Aid. A great effort for a great cause! A special shout out to our Field Officer, Andrew Moore who donated his entire winnings from the 2018 Plant Assessor footy tipping comp ($200). Legend.

We welcome a new recruit

We’re very pleased to welcome Zack Golenia to Plant Assessor in the role of Web Developer.

Zack was born in Singleton and grew up on a remote property in the foothills of the Barrington Tops. He moved to Newcastle in 2005 to study Computer Science at Newcastle University where he was included on the Dean’s Merit List for his first two years.

His most recent job before joining us at Plant Assessor was as a Software Developer for well-known, Hunter based contractor management and site safety provider, Pegasus Management.

Outside of work Zack is a four-wheel drive enthusiast and in 2015 took a road trip through the Kimberley’s across to Broome and back through central Australia. His passion for off roading and his general interest in machinery and engineering inspired him to learn more about vehicle maintenance and repair and he’s become a proficient, self-taught mechanic.
