ForFarmers are pleased to announce that Simon Pickard has recently joined the team in the south of the country as the regional total feeds specialist.

Bringing many years’ experience to the role, Simon will be providing technical advice and expertise on the full range of alternative feeds available to the ruminant businesses.

“With a base near to Andover, I’ll be covering a large part of the south, all the way from Norfolk across to the South West,” explains Simon. “As part of this role I will be responsible for working with both farmers and our team of ruminant specialists to add value through our huge range of alternative feeds available".

“Covering everything from straights, blends, co-products, and liquids, as a total feed business, ForFarmers has access to a substantial range of alternative feeds. It’s really exciting to have such a wide range of options available, and I’m looking forward to helping farmers find a solution which works for them and enhances their feed efficiencies”. 

Simon started his career at Sparsholt College, Hampshire and has worked in the feed industry ever since. “I’ve built up over 25 years experience in the alternative feeds sector and have a really good breadth of knowledge in this area. For me the best part of this new role is putting this expertise to use and helping farmers to talk through their challenges and come up with the right solution for them. It’s really all about that personal approach to help ruminant businesses improve production efficiency and reach their performance goals.”
