Vet Tech and SQP
Not coming from a farming background, I fell into the agriculture industry through my passion for animals, where I chose to study Animal Management for 5 years, 2 at Rodbaston college for a Diploma and 3 at Harper Adams University getting a Foundation Degree. I then chose to explore the animal industry by working in Wildlife Centres, completing a Zoo Internship, and volunteering for a dog rescue in Malaga in 2019. However I ended up going back to the Agriculture industry where I worked for 10 months on a poultry farm rearing Pullets to supply eggs for Waitrose, then in 2020 moved on to Calf rearing on a farm in Middlewich home to 600 Holstein Friesians.
Where are you from?
Originally, I am from Hednesford a small village next to Cannock Chase, however, I moved to Cheshire in October 2020 and now live in Nantwich.
Where is the best place you have ever travelled to?
