Allied industry manifestos

A-One Feed Supplements

My initial curiosity about farming began when staying with my grandparents in East Anglia as a child. From this point forward, all I ever wanted was to be actively involved in the farming industry. The last 31 years of my career, have taken me through various different roles from pig production to feed manufacture. This has consolidated my knowledge and understanding of the daily demands prevalent in farming today.

One of my main focuses is to provide young people with similar opportunities I myself was fortunate enough to experience, in the hope of ensuring future generations for our industry.

I would very much like to be a part of the NPA Allied Industry Group, supporting both the farming industry and the NPA. The NPA has become an effective voice for the industry and has run many successful campaigns in the past and I look forward to being able to assist and support these in the future, as well as meeting the current challenges on food safety, antibiotic reduction, and addressing ongoing concerns about farming protection and levels of security in the pig industry.

Becoming part of the NPA Allied Industry Group would be a privilege and enable me to move forward elements that could facilitate industry success as well as meet the constant challenges that arise as the pig industry moves forward.
