Having been born in the county of Angus, here in Eastern Scotland, I spent my early years training to be a cattle auctioneer with the local market. Australia beckoned and I did various jobs in NSW and Queensland over a 2 year period before returning to Scotland. My full time job for the next number of years was buying barley for the whisky trade; during this time I also ran commercial cattle on a rented farm. By 1995, having acquired a wife and Kingston Farm, we moved from commercial cattle into pedigree Angus. (Geordie)
One of the first two cows we bought was a Native Angus and realising the merits and rarity of these beautiful animals, it took 12 years of persistent searching to finally acquire all 9 families left in existence. This rare and valuable breeding was almost completely extinct.
"Geordie has created, from the last handful of 100% Native Origin females in existence, a one of a kind herd."

Duncan & Louise
Duncan and Louise are the owners of the unique small herd of Native red Angus cattle here at Dunlouise.
Duncan has had a very exciting 2 years, working initially for our West Minster MP, buying a small farm close to Kingston, and has just started work again after lockdown as a Project Manager for Migso PCubed.
And Louise is still our resident vet and working for Thrums Vets in Angus!
