Biographical history

The Pastoralists' Union of New South Wales was formed at a meeting attended by representatives from most districts of the State on 9 July 1890. This followed an attempt two years earlier to form a sheepowners' association. Branches were set up in 1890 and district committees were appointed in 1891. The name of the organisation was changed in October 1916 to the Graziers' Association of New South Wales.
