“I support the sales and commercial teams. This includes trialling new diets or approaches to our customer’s on-farm nutrition, helping with technical issues, and gathering innovative information or practices which we can transfer to our customers.”

“My role covers all areas of pigs, with a focus on our NOVA range of sow nutrition and ULTRA product range for finishing pig.”

“I work closely with our account managers in the Eastern areas of England providing key account support. Here I work with customers to understand their needs and goals to drive the best results.”

“One of my current focusses is a trial on outdoor sows, looking into performance during lactation. I’ve been involved in this trial since the start and I’m now starting to interrogate the data to pull conclusions which I find really interesting.”

 “Like many of us, I’m homebased, but I have a great balance of working from home and being out on-farm.”

 “I help lead and coordinate our UK pig training academy and commercial new starters training program for our UK team, ensuring this reflects up to date industry knowledge.”

Getting to know the team

“Since day one everyone has been so friendly, everyone has time to help.”

“I enjoy the variety of work, I could be working from home, visiting a mill, attending a farm visit, or running trial work. No two days are the same.”

In my spare time…

“I’m very outdoorsy, from running to biking- I enjoy getting outside”

“I have 3 year old identical twin girls, which keep me very busy outside of work!”
