HPL and HPP are owned and run by Ed and Iona Lilburne.

The Business

After 21 years in the corporate world, it was time for a change. They wanted to make a difference and knew they had the knowledge, experience and contacts in all facets of livestock and property to be able to help people maximise their profits. So they decided to take a risk and start their own venture.

With Ed’s positive reputation and quality driven results, he has quickly become a sounding board in the industry. While Ed is generally the person you’ll be liaising with, you’ll find Iona in the engine room running the back end of the business from the office so that Ed can do what he does best in the paddock.

The People

On a personal note, Ed and Iona have built together a beautiful and socially aware little family unit. They have two boys and a girl; Rupert, Digby and Skye.

Just as expected, Ed and the boys love their sports. If they’re not horse riding or playing any sports on the field, you’ll probably find them helping their dad with sheep and cattle work on properties.

On the other end, Skye has more the artistic genes. Skye dances, draws, plays the piano, tennis and touch football while Iona minds the family’s four horses and lazy Labrador. Iona grew up at The Yanko and has a true passion in the land.

When the family is not working, you can catch them at sporting and community events or anywhere else that involves them being all together.

Why in Hay

Ed and Iona are born and bred locals. That’s the place they’ve known and breathed for decades. They both know that Hay is in a unique position for livestock producers as Hay’s sheep and cattle are renowned nationwide. Their business is located close to major selling centres, feedlots, abattoirs and most importantly, to store buyers in Victoria and Eastern NSW.

With this in mind, the time was right for them to offer a unique service and become Hay’s only independent agents. Part of their unique service is the consistency in service and knowledge.
