    Likewise I acknowledge the contribution of John to the Australian beef industry. He helped the positioning of our Australian beef product in Asia where he opened a number of doors in support of expanding Australian agricultural opportunities for me also.

    I m deeply saddened to hear about John’s death. John was a lovely person who touched so many lives with his kindness, friendship,love and generosity.
    John treated all his business associates as his own family. He showed me how to be strong and positive in difficult times, always encouraged me to believe in myself, taught me to run a business with integrity and honesty and kept my spirit s high to achieve things I couldn’t do. Today I am a better person because of him .
    John lived his life a model of Grace and goodness. I am very lucky to have known John.
    May his soul rest in peace .

    In response to comment from Charlie Goode, John Kaus influence was “Australia wide” and if the said reader hasn’t heard of him I would suggest he has never had any contact with the Australian Live Export Industry which is “Australia wide”. RIP John Kaus.

    John was a mate from the first time we meet as 14 year olds. We both ended up going to Emerald college and meeting a great group of friends. The group get together every year or so. John organizing a meeting spot and ending up in someone’s room on the rum. He was a great husband and father. I will miss you mate. Suggy.

    I value Beef Central, but aren’t you being a bit Qld centric?
    I’m sure this man was a valuable member of the Qld cattle industry, but being in SA, I have no idea who he is.

    Thanks for your comment Charlie. John’s influence through his live export business was across most of northern Australia – the Northern Territory and northern regions of WA as well as Queensland. If we limited our tributes to recently passed industry stakeholders whose influence was truly ‘national’, it would be a very short list indeed. We’d like to point out that there are now a dozen reader comments on the original story marking John’s passing – from three Australian states and territories, and at least five readers based overseas.
