Shirley studied agriculture and has worked on farms in England and Germany, but gained an in-depth technical dairy education from working at Dairy Farmer magazine as a journalist and editor. The experience allowed her to visit the best dairy farms and interview the top scientists, vets and consultants in Britain, Europe, North America and Australasia.

A job swop with a journalist on the New Zealand Dairy Exporter gave her invaluable experience of milk production in the Waikato. Further journalism on the Farmers Weekly livestock page was followed by six years as a freelance journalist.

Now her interviewing skills are used in facilitating meetings and discussion groups, as well as coaching farmers in the eastern counties of England, where there are few farms but a lot of passion for dairying.
