My professional highlights

I work as a Dairy Consultant based at the Craibstone campus but cover the whole of Scotland with my job. I have a strong academic background combined with extensive knowledge of the animal feed sector and practical on farm experience.

My responsibilities include providing advice on dairy herd management with a specialism in nutrition and ration formulation. I also have in-depth knowledge of youngstock nutrition and management as well as a particular interest in mineral nutrition. While the majority of my work is dairy based, I also do some beef nutrition work as well.

I have over 12 years experience in the animal feed industry, having worked as a Ruminant Nutritionist for East Coast Viners Animal Nutrition, Agri-Lloyd International Ltd. and Norvite Animal Nutrition Ltd.
As well as my technical expertise, I am experienced in project management and meeting facilitation through delivering KTIF and UIF projects. I have also helped organise and deliver several Farm Advisory Service meetings and large on-farm dairy events to provide knowledge transfer of research outcomes to farmers and the dairy industry.
