After working on many properties in the Thargomindah district as well as Julia Creek and Cloncurry, backpacking and working in Europe and the U.K, pressing in the shearing sheds and working in the oil and gas industry I have settled back home with my young family. “Picarilli” runs in a normal season 6000 merino sheep and 1500 beef cattle.

Role: Producer
“Yarmouth” Cunnamulla
Phone:0429 405 708
Jesse Moody manages a mixed enterprise on his families property, “Yarmouth”, north east of Cunnamulla. While being involved in sheep and wool for the majority of his working life, he worked across all facets of the industry. His main interests are pasture management, nutrition and sheep genetics as they all have the biggest influences on the livestock. In his spare time, Jesse keeps busy in the region with cricket, rugby and the show society through their working dogs. Assisting other proactive sheep and wool producers to network, improve their management systems and adopt new technologies are just a few of the reasons Jesse has become involved with Leading Sheep.
