Peter Borges

Barry Farms Manager

Pete’s had a unique path to the dairy industry, after completing a Diploma in Accounting and then studying Engineering in Brazil, he spent 3 years in Portugal working for Volkswagen.  In 2004, while in New Zealand visiting friends who were dairy farming locally, Pete wound up relief milking to cover one of the regular staff members who was out on ACC.  It turns out it was a match made in heaven - Pete was hooked and has never looked back. 

Initially coming on board with BEL Group in 2013 as manager of Ellingham farm, Pete eventually took on the role of Hedley Farm manager in 2015 and then worked through the amalgamation of the two farms in 2016 to ultimately form Barry Farms. Pete's strength in animal husbandry consistently produces positive results with excellent mating and in calf rates.
