Jim and Pam McGregor have run the Ardcairnie Angus stud operation on Maybenup since 1998.
Studmaster Jim McGregor comes from a family with a long background in breeding Aberdeen Angus cattle in the home of the breed, Scotland. Jim's late father, James, established the well-respected Murdochcairnie Aberdeen Angus stud in Fife in the 1940's and brother William founded his Newcairnie stud on the neighbouring farm in the 1970's; that stud is now run by his daughter Angela in Aberdeenshire. Like Newcairnie, the Ardcairnie herd is run on commercial lines to ensure productive, long-living and sound cattle.
Pam McGregor also comes from a farming family, being born at Ardler, near Dundee (from whence the “Ard” in Ardcairnie comes). Pam’s family in Scotland continue to run a diverse operation including raising cattle and sheep and growing a variety of crops.
Jim and Pam have both been extensively involved in a range of community and agriculture related organisations since arriving in Australia in 1973, both together and individually. This has included local agricultural societies, land conservation, industry groups and State and Federal Angus Committees, holding various positions including sitting on Federal Council.
Both are strongly committed to creating a sustainable agriculture industry and strong rural communities; they continue to get involved in local, regional and national initiatives that advance these goals.
