Lochie MacGillivray

Agribusiness Consultant Director


Lochie started Farm Management Consulting in 1986, initially with MAF advisory services and latterly with Agfirst. Lochie has also had a farming career, leasing land off family to put the first deer post in during 1981. In 1990 Lochie and his wife Louise purchased the family property and set about on a development programme as well as increasing its scale running sheep cattle and deer.
