Ray Pickering

started his career as a wheat/sheep Mallee farmer in the Millewa, before moving south and farming in a higher rainfall area at St Arnaud. After a few years Ray sold out to move back to the Mildura district and set himself up as a contract harvester specialist. As well as having a Case IH combine, Ray purchased a tipper truck to cart the grain, which led to him in the carting business – carting amongst other products almonds from the farms back to the hulling plant. Through carting grain, Ray got to know the Almond orchards around Mildura pretty well. An opening came up in the Sales department at Sunrise Ag and Ray thought we would like to do that.
