sold irrigation equipment, which was

Gerald’s father, Peter B. Geeraert,
born 1927 at the farm, was the first ir-

a hand move system. Initially, he used
this system on the pasture for his cows
which was very labour intensive, ulti-

the fence line.
Gerald was born in 1953 in Calgary
and attended school at St Rita’s through
Grade 10, with high school completed

ploma in agriculture mechanics at Olds
College before returning to farm with
his Dad. In 1980, his brother Dale start-
