The LBCA represents grass roots livestock and bulk transport operators throughout NSW. From the single truck owner operator, right through to one of the largest fleets in Australia, our members work hard to keep the agricultural supply chain moving throughout the state. Below, you can meet a few of our members and hear their stories about why they joined the LBCA and why they are passionate about our industry.
A relatively new LBCA member and a young livestock and rural transporter, Adam Manwaring recommends that other new drivers “just get in and have a go. Learn from older drivers.”

FRED TROUTMAN, GOULBURN LIVESTOCK
Fred has had to do a lot of talking to councils to help them understand the issues for local transporters.
Deputy Mayor of Goulburn, Bib Kirk, attended the 2015 LBCA conference and spoke very openly about his experience with Fred and other local transporters. He talked about Fred playing a key role in helping him understand the challenges for local transporters around getting access. The conversations between the local transporters and council people were the key to gaining access to important routes in the local area.
