from Pastoral Review and Graziers' Record, 15 October 1955

Mr. Herbert Field, governing director of Herbert Field Pty. Ltd., and one of the best-known figures in grazing and meat export circles in New South Wales and Queensland, died at his home at Bellevue Hill, Sydney, on 4th inst. at the age of 77.

Mr. Field was born at Erith, Kent, England, and came to Australia when he was a child. He entered his family's wholesale meat business and, with his brother, the late Mr. T. A. Field, developed the company into one of the biggest meat exporting organisations in Australia.

Subsequently Mr. Field formed his own company, which now controls several large pastoral properties in New South Wales, including Merrowie, near Hillston, Widgiewa, near Urana, Giro, at Gloucester, and Red Hill, Gundagai. The last named is best known as the home of the Red Hill Hereford stud, while a prominent Merino stud is bred at Merrowie.

The late Mr. Field is survived by his wife, Mrs. Nellie Field, a daughter, Mrs. G. Lowe, and two sons, Mr. T. A. (Jack) Field, and Mr. Herbert Field.
