“I grew up near Beddgelert in Snowdonia on my family’s beef and sheep farm. Before my dad semi-retired we had over 1,000 Welsh mountain sheep and a suckler herd of Aberdeen Angus. I try to visit regularly so that I can assist my dad with various farming tasks such as scanning, lambing and shearing. I have always had a keen interest in farming and it has led me to where I am today.”
“I decided to go to university to learn more about Veterinary Bioscience and I completed my degree at Glasgow in 2014. Following this I studied a doctorate degree in Dairy Nutrition at Harper Adams from 2014-2018. The thesis I researched was about feeding algae to cows in order to increase the milk content of omega 3 whilst also boosting fertility."
"Through my studies I have had the opportunity to travel the world, I have presented my work at international conferences in the USA, Ireland and UK and won a Henry Plumb Scholarship to attend the RASC conference in Canada in 2019. I thoroughly enjoyed academic research as it at the forefront of innovation and leads to new discoveries and improvements. After graduating I felt it was the right time to move my career into the agricultural industry and help make a difference to farmers, animals and businesses.”
