Tristan a new LDC face around the BBB

We welcome Tristan Gibson (pictured) to the team.

He is based in the Bowen office. 

Tristan is from the bush, he grew up in the border town of Goondiwindi on the family cattle property with three brothers and a sister, before heading to Gatton to study a Bachelor of Agricultural Science with Honours at the University of Queensland. 

He then moved to Bowen in mid-2020 to pursue a career in the horticultural sector. The itch to return to work in the grazing industry was growing so when he saw this job advertised, he jumped at the chance and applied.

Some of you may have seen Tristan around the ridges, he’s heavily involved in the Bowen rugby club. He’s a sports fanatic, and also loves to spend his free time pursuing outdoors activities like camping, fishing and bush walking. 

Tristan’s loving all that the Bowen and Collinsville region offers and is keen to get stuck in and work with the region’s landholders.

“Growing up on my parents cattle property I’ve always had a passion and connection to the cattle industry,” he said.

“I’m interested in furthering my understanding of the different grazing systems and how these can be improved to increase profitability and land condition.

“I’m particularly looking forward to getting out and meeting the landholders that make up the BBB region and continuing the strong working relationships NQ Dry Tropics has with landholders and their communities”. 

Welcome aboard, mate!
