Ryan Cooper

Graduate Management Trainee

I joined the Genus Future Leaders Graduate Program in September 2021 as a Graduate Management Trainee, after graduating from The University of Manchester with a BSc in Oral Health Science. Prior to my time studying, I spent five years serving in the Royal Air Force.

While new to the agricultural industry, I have enjoyed seeing things from a different perspective within this fascinating industry. My passion is working with people, helping them to overcome challenges and maximise potential, at an individual level and beyond.

My past experience in helping others to improve their overall health, along with my military experience, has taught me to focus on the process and adapt. This has served as a valuable transferable foundation. I have since enjoyed gaining experience within both the beef and dairy sector, especially around genetic improvement, breeding strategies, animal health and achieving farm goals.

Nourishment is a basic need and I am passionate about continuing to learn what I can to help farm businesses produce this need efficiently and sustainably while continuing to develop in a people-focused, science-based field.

In my spare time, you will most likely find me lacing up my running shoes as I hit the road or trails to explore the great outdoors.
