Marketing Agent

Steve Daley

Using a retained, licensed agent, marketing is planned with the producers’ interests as the main priority. Members receive advice on their cattle marketing, pricing options and assistance to manage the logistics of the sale.

Members are provided with the best and most efficient channel to market live cattle. The total volume of saleable stock (currently 20-30,000 head per annum), allows members to secure the best price in the market and access premium offers.

The marketing agent also provides AuctionsPlus™ assessments, a competitive stock buying service and ability to combine trucking lots with other members to cost effectively freight smaller lots to sale.


Steve Daley  joined Ebor Beef as the Marketing Agent in July 2023.

Steve comes from an agency background having 10 years’ experience in his previous role as a Stock and Station Agent / Auctioneer with  Colin Say & Co.  at Glen Innes.

Steve originally hails from Inverell and spent some of his earlier years in South Australian & Tasmanian agencies.  From there he broadened his horizons working in the Gulf of Carpentaria, Northern Queensland before heading overseas for 12 months.

Steve has joined the Ebor Beef fold as a fully qualified agency including full AuctionsPlus™ accreditation.  Through his last 5 years working in the New England region, Steve has gained great working relationships with buyers and processors and he looks forward to marketing the quality of livestock that comes out of the Ebor Beef Group.
