Steve is involved in the Bull Calf forum and has an interest in genetics and practical uses of sexed semen. He has an active role in three Strategic Dairy Farms and coordinates the Shropshire-based Millennium Discussion group.

Steve’s practical experience includes establishing his own farming and cattle contracting enterprise in the South West of England, with most of his experience coming from higher output AYR calving systems.  This followed on from a tenure at NMR as a Business Development Manager, concentrating on cattle health schemes, in particular Johne’s, BVD and Mastitis.
