 We are Contractors that change the industry for the better

DW Rural Agencies was first established in 2008 by Dayne West. Dayne comes from a 5th-generation farming family in Central West NSW and has over 20 years of business experience in the shearing and agriculture industry. Dayne also educates at the local TAFE and is passionate to help the next generation in the industry. 

Our top-quality management systems support our teams to provide the best possible service and ensure that all work is completed at the highest standard.

All DW Rural Agencies staff are trained and are continually upskilling through AWI (Australian Wool Innovation), in-house workshops and through TAFE courses.

You can see from day one that we offer our services with a difference. We understand that there is no “one size fits all” approach in the agricultural industry and Dayne and the team are always striving to listen and work to your needs.

How we can add
value to your business

We see DW Rural Agencies as an extension of your business and we approach our work as more than “just another job”. Our aim is to ensure that we are adding value to businesses through the delivery of a high quality service, tailored to meet the needs of each client that we work with.

It's time 
to stop...

  • Working with contractors with unreliable and ever-changing teams.

  • Questioning whether your contractor has the right insurance.

  • Wondering whether your contractors will turn up on time (or at all).

  • Putting up with poor communication and contractors you can never seem to get a hold of.

  • Sticking to their schedule, not yours.


  • Hiring contractors that focus on their team culture and development.

  • Feeling confident that your flock’s welfare - and your bottom line - are our priority.

  • Knowing that we will show up, when and where you need us, with a team that is ready to do the job.

  • Working with a reliable team that is passionate about their jobs, and the industry as a whole.

  • Getting the opportunity to provide feedback and seeing change the next time that we work together.
