Our Specialists

I am old enough and wise enough to remember that businesses, have to make a profit as well as feed people, care for the birds and the bees and ensure the planet will sustain future generations. A tall order but one which is endlessly fascinating and never dull.

Since graduating from Seale Hayne College of Agriculture, I have spent my career working within the agriculture sector. I have worked within Genus/Promar since 1990, initially as a consultant in South Wales then onto business development. During my time as a manager for Genus Milking Systems and overseeing the laboratory analysis service, I developed our […]

I’ve always had a passion for dairy cows, having spent my childhood on my family’s Parmigiano Reggiano dairy farm. It was those early experiences that spurred me to study for a graduate degree in Agricultural Science at Milano University. During my degree, I also had the opportunity to spend some time in Scotland where I […]

I thrive on helping my clients succeed.  I use my varied knowledge to help clients focus and get the job done with a consistent organised approach, and make it an “up-beat” experience.  I have worked as a consultant with Promar since 2007. As well as working directly with clients, I have managed Promar’s in-house training courses.  I keep up to date with […]

Emily Collins

I first developed an interest in agriculture as a child in rural Sussex, and knew from an early age that this was the sector that I’d live and work in when I grew up. After completing school, I undertook a degree in Animal Science at Harper Adams, graduating in 2018. Soon after, I joined AHDB […]

My great interest in agriculture began when I was a child. However, my specialisation in animal health and livestock production systems emerged when I studied Agricultural Science at the University of Milan. After my degree, I worked on a farm with a closed herd of Limousin cattle, which produced beef for its two butcher shops. […]

Lewis Graham

Senior Farm Business Consultant

Having been brought up on a rural farm in Ireland, I have been involved with agriculture from a very young age. I’ve always had a particularly keen interest in dairy farming and have spent over 10 years learning and working in the industry. With a degree in Agricultural Management from RAU, I strive to be […]

Paul Henman

Principal Farm Business Consultant

I was reared on a dairy farm in south Warwickshire and formally educated in Agriculture at Harper Adams University College. However, my real education for my consultancy role has come from the hundreds (if not now thousands!) of dairy farmers I have had the privilege to meet and work with over the 30 + years of my career. My satisfaction comes from helping to find solutions to the challenges of modern farming systems in sustainable ways for the farming family, the cows and the environment.

I developed a passion for science in primary school. I attended a scientific high school and then gained an Animal Production degree in Padova. After graduation, I started working in a cheese factory and for a meat producer. From there, I reached out to ABS Italia and started as an RMS technician. After 5 years, […]

I have a BSc in Agricultural Business Management from the University of Reading which has given me the business […]
