My peak interest when starting with the company is to understand how ForFarmers, the total feed business, help farmers gain maximum profitability out of their business, whilst being able to provide the best advice which helps sustain a well running and functioning farm. Currently, I hope to specialise in the youngstock area with schemes such as ‘Target24’ ensuring dairy farmers get healthy calves developing into strong heifers that calve at the desired 24 months. However, after being exposed to other aspects of the business my view may change to something else within ForFarmers over the next year, which will be interesting to see develop.
I am going to share my experience through a blog which I hope will be a interesting read for those interested in what ForFarmers get up to and for anyone interested in a future scholarship or job in the industry.
I look forward to my time with ForFarmers and I am excited to see what I can bring to the company.
