Big player Inglewood Farms sold to RM Williams AH

Australian poultry farms are big business to a lot of food companies around the world. They are so big that one of the largest poultry farms in Australia, Inglewood Farms, was just sold to an agricultural business in Southern Queensland. What is special about Inglewood Farms is that they produce organic poultry meat and eggs from their birds. With the increasing demand for organic poultry around the world, this has caused RM Williams Agricultural Holdings to purchase the farming company. As more farms close down around the world, this gives more business to bigger farms like this that cater to many nations outside of Australia.

There are plenty of farms around the world that also contribute to the global poultry market, but Inglewood Farms is responsible for 80% of the poultry that is sold within Australia. The company has been undervalued for quite some time, despite the fact that the poultry market is bigger than ever. If you look at big economic countries, like the United States, their farms are decreasing at a huge rate because they have simply become an import country. Most of the poultry and other livestock meat sold in American stores were raised in other foreign countries, like Australia. This has caused big farming companies, like Inglewood Farms, to receive more business and become more valuable to the rest of the world. Over 50 different parties were interested in purchasing Inglewood Farms and its quality farm sheds, structures and other assets, both from Australia and from other nations around the world.

This large farm purchase came just in time before a national Christmas egg shortage hit Australia due to a Bird Flu outbreak. It has been reported that over 450,000 chickens were killed at a free range egg farm in New South Wales. Fortunately, there is no sign that this Bird Flu is the H5N1 strain that is known to kill human beings. But still, this egg shortage during the holidays has caused the prices of eggs in Australia to skyrocket. This certainly gives Inglewood Farms more opportunity because they have not been hit yet with any Bird Flu. That means the demand for their eggs will rise, which will mean great news to the company that purchased it. To make sure their eggs are safe and organic, Inglewood Farms gets audited on a regular basis to ensure their eggs are not hazardous to the public’s health. The company is also certified by Australian Certified Organic and Free Range Egg & Poultry of Australia.

10 things not to say to your boss in 2013

Having a boss can be tough, especially when you know that your job lays in his hands. There are many times when people make mistakes by saying certain things to their bosses, which manage to change their career and relationship with him.

Whenever we are at our jobs, we should try to remain calm and try our best to keep ourselves from saying some of the next phrases which are well known for getting many people into trouble.

‘This is impossible’

Having a negative attitude from the start can make your relationship a lot worse, and also show a lack of interest in the job and subjects that your boss considers important.

‘I just want the money’

Even though it may be true, nobody wants to hear it, especially if you work for them.

‘Do I really need to do this?’

If your boss asks you to and it makes sense, the answer is probably yes.

‘I have more important things to do’

Showing this amount of lack of interest in your work can make anyone’s boss think twice before working with you once again.

‘This is not what I was hired for’

We all need to come to an understanding that at least once, we will need to do something different in our jobs comparing to what we are used to.

‘I do not like this job’

Saying so can make your boss angry, but also make him consider replacing you.

‘Do I really have to get this done’?

It may seem like common sense, but when your boss asks you to do a certain project, it should become a must for any of us.

‘I told you not to trust me’

This can truly change the opinion your boss has on you, along with the ones of other employees. Together with this, you will also lose most, if not all of the trust your colleagues have in you.

‘I do not get paid well enough to do something like this’

The truth is that you have signed a contract which states your salary. Telling your boss that it is not good enough in the middle of a debate will not make him change his mind and grant you a higher income.

‘Sighing’

We all sigh from time to time when something does not seem convenient. If you need to do something or you are frustrated about a certain matter, try your best to keep it to yourself.

In conclusion, there are many words which should not be addressed to a boss if your hope is high when it comes down to succeeding in the company. Bosses may seem mean from time to time, but they are also people and need to be understood.
