Our team

Our strength is our team!

Led by Pat Cleary who is a seventh generation to the Moss Vale /Burrawang farming area. Pat started in the livestock agency 1991 just as he finished his education at St Gregory's college. After a initial traineeship in Sydney Pat was sent to Wagga , then on to Bairnsdale in the Victorian high country. Pat returned to the Southern Highlands in 1997 and has continued in the livestock agency business which has evolved into ECM Livestock.


Outside of business Pat is blessed with a beautiful wife Leanne and their three lovely daughters who are more than capable of keeping him in line! They are fortunate to live on their own farm just out of Moss Vale where they enjoy pasture improvement and fattening steers. 

In order to maintain his obsession with sport and fitness Pat is a speedy and skilled winger for the mighty Burrawang BUNYIPS hockey club! Whilst his skills are well hidden in the team,Burrawang are still considered one of the best teams in the competition and certainly the loudest.

Pat has for many years been involved with the local Robertson show as an announcer and organiser .
