Tanisha Brown, Account manager and Ruminant specialist

My Role

I’m an account manager and ruminant specialist in the organic and grazing team. My job involves working alongside farmers to provide nutritional solutions on farm.

Career so far

I joined ForFarmers in the middle of 2022. Before that I spent seven years working for another agricultural business dealing with farmers and supplying various products like silage additives, slurry additives, teat dips and bedding. I then became more focused on forage and that gave me the confidence and passion to step into the nutrition side of things. I studied Animal Welfare and Behaviour at Myerscough College which covered small animals as well as farm animals. During my time there I got involved with lambing, calving and milking and that is where my interest and passion for agriculture started.

Favourite parts of the job

I love working with farmers and helping them to overcome challenges that they face. Farmers are a critical part of the supply chain, so they have my utmost respect and it makes me really proud to be part of the industry and supporting them. I also work alongside great colleagues who support me every step of the way. There is always someone to turn to for help.

When I’m not at work

I live near Preston with my partner who is an agricultural mechanic. In my spare time I enjoy taking my two Labradors and Pomeranian on long walks in the countryside. We love exploring and finding new routes and cover quite long distances. I also enjoy spending time with friends and family.
