Associated Stock and Station Agents Roll of Honour

This honour board once hung in the foyer of the Administration building at Newmarket saleyards.  When the market closed in 1987 the board was removed.  In 1995 Keith Vincent (who wrote On the fall of the hammer) assisted in recovering the board from the City of Melbourne, and it now hangs in the foyer of the Victorian Livestock Exchange, Pakenham.  The board was kindly photographed by Jenny Coates.  For further information about the stockmen go here.
