Blake O’Meagher joined Farmanco in November 2017, after spending four years with Primaries CRT as Branch Manager and Agronomist, and is based out of Beverley. Blake provides services in the areas of York, Northam, Quairading, Corrigin and Beverley.
Blake has always sought to work within the industry given the close family and community driven vision that agriculture in Australia embodies. After graduating from Muresk, Blake took up a role within the industry as an Agronomist and has worked predominantly throughout the Avon region.
After buying a property just west of Beverley, Blake continues to grow his professional portfolio while remaining an active member within the community. He enjoys being able to run onto a footy field in winter and swing a racquet in the summer heat.
With a keen passion for new and emerging technology, Blake is at the forefront of where technological advancements fit within the Ag Industry, and where they may help benefit farmers and industry professionals. After a trip to the US and the chance to speak with a few key industry professionals around drone use in agriculture, Blake began to explore where utilising this technology can help yield a benefit in Australia; to both industry professionals and farmers.
With continual advancements in the technological space, Blake continues to maintain the necessary insight. Exploring and developing the best possible benefits that new (and existing) technologies can offer in Precision Ag.
