Gerry has been part of the furniture at Maffra for over forty years. During that time he has worked with all species, but more recently with cattle, horses and exotics. He has wound back his work commitments in the past couple of years and now works two days per week at Gippsland Veterinary Hospital. He lives with his wife Tracey on their farm near Heyfield where he now considers himself a deft hand at fencing, irrigation and pasture management. He also enjoys his community service with Heyfield Lions Club and the Heyfield Hospital Board.
