Ian Mitchell

Ian was a humble, generous man with a massive appetite for work. He had a vision, amazing stamina and was a true quiet achiever. Ian was not afraid to share his ideas and great knowledge of the land to inspire others around him.

Over the years he exhibited wool at the Winton Show. When the Show committee decided to hold a Led Steer & Heifer Spectacular in 2005, a Cattle Club was established to give Winton kids the chance to learn and participate in the preparation and showing of led cattle. Ian very generously donated six Santa Gertrudis heifers and feed to the Cattle Club. Later, at the Show that year, the heifers were auctioned and all proceeds were donated to local community groups or charities.

After Ian’s death in 2008, a memorial award was established by his family.
