I have worked in the ruminant supply industry since 1983 after graduating from Seale Hayne Agricultural College. I have had increasing roles with J Bibby Agriculture, Dalgety, Franklands Feeds and finally Sales Director with W & J Pye.
In July 2005, I and co-director Mark Borthwick established New Breed UK Ltd, with the entire senior Pye salesman following. The company was born out of dissatisfaction with the way the feed industry looked after its farmer customers, fuelled with a passion for feeding cows and working in sales.
The business model we developed has been exceptionally successful giving customer’s true choice and supporting and aiding them achieve their goals. The company has continued to grow under myself and Mark’s leadership and is now one of the largest Independents in the UK.
In my leisure time my wife Brenda and I have a small flock of Pedigree Ryeland sheep and two horses which we enjoy hacking out in the beautiful Lancashire countryside. We also ran in the Great North run in 2016 for Help for Heroes a charity that is close to our hearts raising over £1,200 in sponsorship.
