Ross grew up on a livestock farm 7 miles south of Perth where he is still based. Graduating from SRUC with a BA Honours degree in Rural Business Management in 2020, Ross spent the following year as a shearing contractor around central Scotland but also in Norway. He then spent a few months in Derbyshire lambing, whilst continuing close involvement in the livestock enterprise at home.
In autumn 2021, Ross joined Andersons Northern as a Trainee Consultant, where he is assisting directors in all aspects of Farm Business Consultancy from preparing business appraisals, financial planning, ongoing management and consultancy advice and contract farming for both arable and livestock farms.
In his time out the office, Ross and his father run a sheep and beef enterprise at home in Perthshire. Spare time is spent in the outdoors with his dogs, mountain biking and watching rugby matches.
