Emerald Land and Cattle Company was founded by Kerry Hayes in 1988 after starting his livestock and property career in Emerald in 1979 and spending time as an auctioneer and livestock salesmen in Gracemere, Charters Towers and Emerald.
Initially selling rural property and livestock, the business diversified into residential real estate, as the township of Emerald began to grow, and into water trading as the agricultural/horticultural potential of the region was realised.
The company is recognised as the pre-eminent specialist in sales of high-quality irrigation land, the marketing specialists in sales of water assets and are the most influential knowledge based entity around land development opportunities in the Central Highlands, Queensland region. The company also provides buying and selling expertise in the Emerald saleyards and by private treaty.
Simply being the best at what the name says and just adding water.
