30 years of Priebbenow Silage
Local family business Priebbenow Silage Contractors (PSC) from East Greenmount recently celebrated 30 years in business.
The company contracts for the entire eastern sea board of Australia for most of the year.
PSC started with family members Chesley, Brett and Scott, along with their wives.
It started with one of the first self-propelled New Holland 1915 Forage harvesters sold within Australia and is now owned by Brett and Carol Priebbenow, with son Brendan and Shannon.
The company has since grown to operate with 3 Claas 960 Forage Harvesters, 3 JCB Loaders, 1 Steiger, 2 Fendt, numerous trucks and up to 18 staff members during peak season.
During a celebratory event Herby Whyte, Chairman of Landpower, announced that PSC holds the record to have purchased the most Claas Forage Harvesters within Australia to date.
Mr Whyte proposed a toast the Priebbenow family and their future.
Family, customers, suppliers and fellow contractors came to celebrate the milestone from as far away as South Australia.
Everyone was treated to an old fashioned bush dance from all time favourites Ridgee Didge Bush Band, along with a Charity Auction for Prostate Cancer and Dolly’s Dream.
The Priebbenow Family was overwhelmed with the generosity of donations and support, raising a little over $30,000 for causes close to their hearts.
