MANY blokes are described as a ‘man of the land’, but in Jamie Beckingsale’s case the epithet is certainly true.

Whether it be the west of the state, Gippsland or the High Country, Jamie has had his hands full of sheep and cattle.

He was born in central Victoria in 1960, where his parents ran a farm.
