Oliver, Katrina and Lionel are the children of Jeffrey Law, 66, who died in a farming accident.

Jeff became trapped beneath farm equipment at his cattle farm in Piora, near Casino on Saturday, June 11.

His grown-up children remembered their father and his passion for farming.

“Dad had the first Brahman stud in the Northern Rivers. Brahmans became his obsession.”

Jeff came from a dairy farm and was greatly influenced by his parents.

“He was a typical bushie. He was bold and talkative.

“If you pulled up for a yarn, it was always half an hour.”

Jeff went through plenty of hardships in his life and he pushed through, his children said.

“He always looked on the bright side – never the negative.”

It was the farm that took up all of Jeff’s time.

“He was never not on the farm.

“We never had a holiday with Dad. He was a workaholic and did everything to his utmost best.”

Jeff grew up on Hogarth Range and later developed a passion for working dogs and stock horses.

“He was a genuine man with the biggest smile anyone had ever seen.”

Jeff never entered his cattle into shows even though they were sought after.

“He was a quiet achiever.”

The funeral is at the Parkview Funeral Home in Casino on July 8 at 11am.
