Dr Peter Evans
Graduated from Onderstepoort in 1983
Joined CS Vet in 1993
Peter was raised on a mixed, cattle and crop farm in the Freestate where he developed a passion for agriculture. In 1998 Peter was offered the opportunity to farm pigs for a cousin in the Freestate. This was a totally new piggery where he was intimately involved in planning the buildings and start-up phase, reticulation systems, labour management and training, management systems and effluent systems. This experience has stood him in good stead to offer a comprehensive service as a consultant in the pig industry. Peter considers the following to be his strong points: general consultancy service, computer management systems, data analysis, disease surveillance and cost-benefit analysis. Peter’s interests also include developing employees on farm and ensuring that this valuable resource is used to its full potential.
