TONY Seabrook was pleased to stay at the helm of the Pastoralists and Graziers Association (PGA) after being re-elected for his third term as president last week.

The York farmer said the lobby group was continuing its work on key industry issues, including clearing legislation, private property rights and the growing WA wild dog plague.

Bevan Henderson, Digby Stretch and Lachlan McTaggart were elected as the new senior executive at the annual general meeting.

Mr Henderson, Gidgegannup, is treasurer.

He and Mr Seabrook are the two longest-serving members.

"We both joined the association in about 1982 - it wasn't planned that way, but we are both on the executive," Mr Seabrook said.

Mr Stretch, Kojonup, and Mr McTaggart, Gingin, were elected unopposed as vice-presidents.

"We have always had two VPs, as they both live in different areas of the State, the responsibility will be shared between two people, which adds a wealth of knowledge to the association,'' Mr Seabrook said.

Five ordinary executive positions were filled by Kathy Lovelock, Ashley Dowden, Belinda "Bindi" Murray, Clinton Ayres and John Snooke.

Former vice-president Ellen Rowe said she did not stand for the position due to work commitments.

She was nominated as the executive candidate for the Yalgoo district committee.

Pastoralist Digby Corker was nominated for the Pilbara district committee and Trevor Hodshon for the Sandstone district.

Mr Seabrook said the commodity committee chair positions would be considered within the next few months.
