I work closely with dairy and beef farms in Northern Ireland and Scotland monitoring both technical and financial performance, and helping to improve their business strategies.

I perform weekly grass measuring on grass based dairy farms to help clients to maximise growth and utilisation of grass, producing a weekly grazing plan which aids clients to develop grazing infrastructure.

Many years of experience in nutrient management and my FACTS qualification enable me to advise my clients on fertiliser and manure applications throughout the year. I am also developing the Promar beef offering.

I am excited about growing the Promar business in Northern Ireland by working with progressive farmers who are keen to achieve excellence and adapt in challenging market conditions.

My first farming experience was a summer spent on a dairy farm at age 16, when I had just finished my GCSE’s. I fell in love with farming so decided to study a BSc (Hons) in Agricultural Technology and have had a career in the industry ever since.

After a busy week at work I enjoy watching a decent game of Rugby, playing golf and travelling.
