Marie Powell

I joined Promar in 2019 as an Admin Assistant before being promoted to my current role as a Farm Business Analyst in South Wales.

I graduated in 2019 with a BSc Hons Degree in Agriculture with Farm Business Management.

I grew up on an upland sheep and beef farm and spent all my college and university holidays working on various dairy farms around the UK, Southern Ireland and New Zealand. During my final year at university, I was part of the team that came 2nd in the national UK Farm Planner Competition which required a full business appraisal.

I previously worked for a feed company specialising in ruminant nutrition where I gained specialism in dairy cow welfare (locomotion, BCS, foot-trimming) and feed (milk from forage/concentrate).

I have a passion for sustainable, profitable dairy systems; particularly within grassland management and dairy nutrition.
