...you've got to be honest, you've got to be reliable and you've got to be on time, and you have to listen.

- Brian Maher, after 50 years with Elders

Integrity and an ability to listen, were the mainstays of Brian Maher's long career as a livestock agent acting on behalf of clients across the Riverina.
