John Strang, aged 84 of Auldhouse, near East Kilbride, is ‘Still Game’.
Milking twice a day, John keeps himself busy curling and golfing as well as helping out generally around the farm. The Strang family have farmed in the area since 1597. Currently dairying on the worst land in Lanarkshire, according to John’s father, he milks 120 cows with his brother Bill on Auldhouse Farm, Rawhead Farm and Cogrunnan Mill, John’s home. The family have extended the land they own over the years and have ventured into Texels and crosses under the competent eye of John’s daughter, Doris, and her husband Dave.
John enjoys travelling, holidaying last year in Russia, China the year before, and visiting Canada this year for a family wedding. He is also active in the Rotary Club – a busy man, he lives life to the full.
