Statement of work experience:
I have the invaluable experience of working directly on an organic and a conventional dairy farms in the UK. I therefore appreciate what farmers are experiencing and can relate with them in all aspects of herd care (production, reproduction, health, nutrition and farm budgeting etc.). I am now using these on-farm experiences to back my very sound academic/ technical background in ruminant nutrition, reproduction and general management to benefit farmers in my consultancy work.
