Stockman: Geoff Anderson
Geoff has been at Pitgaveny since 1988. He is our stockman, looking after cattle, which we raise for beef. He sees through an arduous two calvings a year, producing roughly 220 a year. Recently he started breeding pedigree Simmental cattle with great success. Geoff’s wife Kate has been very involved in caring for the bulls he has bred, making sure they enjoy having a wash and blow dry, and leading them around the ring when they’re on show.
Co-ordinator: Brian Birnie
Brian came to work at Pitgaveny in 2013 and works with the large range of machinery we have on the farm. He ploughs the ground, sows seed, harvests crops with the combine harvester, sprays crops and works with the livestock when required. He is very adept in the workshop too, fixing machinery and being an expert welder.
