He was educated at the local school, and in 1884 entered the service of the Wellington Meat Preserving and Refrigerating Company at Ngahauranga. After three years Mr. Moore was promoted to the position of inspector of sheep for export, which position he held till 1888, when he was appointed manager of Mr. E. Barber's works at Kaiwarra. In 1892 Mr. Moore entered the service of the present Company, which a short time previously had acquired the former Company's business, and has since successfully managed the immense works. Mr. Moore was married in 1889 to the eldest daughter of Mr. George Beech, settler of Ohariu, and has two sons and two daughters.
