Hugh McEachern

Dealer Principal, Owner

Hugh’s family has been farming since 1839. Hugh still runs his own mixed enterprise ‘Injemira’ outside Warrnambool, however his passion for farming had him cross the divide in 2000 to Agrimac, selling, servicing and providing machinery ‘that farmers need’. With branches in Ballarat, St Arnaud and Hamilton Agrimac is a significant provider to Victorian farming communities. Being a farmer Hugh knows the difference great gear and machinery can make. At Agrimac we value close personal working relationships with our customers, assisting to increase productivity.

Craig Ness

Operations Manager

Craig has decades of experience in the agricultural sector, starting with growing up on an approximately 1000-acre dairy farm in Coleraine, to joining his first ag dealership in Hamilton in 1993 at the ripe old age of 17. Working his way from apprentice mechanic, to parts, administration and sales, eventually Craig bought into that New Holland dealership, just 8 years after his first day on the job.

Craig later sold his shareholding, travelled Australia for two years and then returned to the ag sector joining Windmill Ag in Hamilton and staying there for nearly a decade, growing into the role of Group Sales Manager. Windmill Ag became part of the Cervus group in April of 2014. Craig, who is now based out of Ballarat continues to operate a contracting business of his own across the Western Districts.

"I enjoy the growth phase of a business, Agrimac is in that phase now where there is great integration between the Branches underway, there is a focus on what else we can provide for the communities we deal with and on expanding so we can offer more to more farmers out there and build jobs for locals too. From my perspective, it’s great to see a family owned and operated business, with Hugh and Prue and the entire team pushing to grow and provide opportunities for Western Districts people, as well as making a difference to farmers out there each and every day."
