Never Say Never

Richard Apel is a retired Droughtmaster (Australia’s own breed) stud cattle producer and exporter with a life-long interest in art. As a matter of fact, when he left college in 1955, he begged his father to allow him a year at art-school in Brisbane. Richard’s father informed him, that he didn’t decry the arts, but he could see no future there at all. So it was home to the cattle property to partake of an apprenticeship in breeding and marketing beef cattle.
