Angus’s passion for stud Merino sheep was ignited as a youngster, growing-up on Glenowie and Wartaka Station, via Port Augusta, working alongside his father Don.
After graduating in 1989, Angus spent 3 years jackarooing at Goolgumbla Merino stud under the guidance of manager Kim Hannaford. Angus returned to Glenowie after his time in the Riverina of NSW with a greater knowledge and enthusiasm for the Merino industry.
