Members of the dairy industry will be sad to hear of the passing of long time Illawarra member and dairy farmer, Mr Gordon Downes of Jamberoo, NSW.

Gordon was Federal Treasurer of the Illawarra Cattle Society of Australia and has been a stallwart of the Illawarra breed for a long period of time.

His funeral will be held on Thursday, October 21 at the Jamberoo Roman Catholic Church at 11am.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Gordon’s wife Marge and family at this sad time.
