Ann Coombes

Ann Coombes - ForFarmers Youngstock Specialist

My family milk a herd of 280 Holsteins in Long Sutton in Somerset. When I'm not at my day job, I enjoy milking at home. I joined ForFarmers five years ago and during the first year I spent time learning about all the different areas and departments that are within ForFarmers. I then took on the role of youngstock specialist, as I’ve always had a particular interest in this area. I cover a large geographical area from Cornwall right across to Kent.

Michael Duncan

Michael Duncan - ForFarmers Youngstock Specialist

In contrast to Ann, I am based in Ayrshire and cover Scotland and Cumbria. I have been a youngstock specialist with ForFarmers for three years and enjoy visiting customers across the region. For me, the best part of the job is working with customers and helping them to achieve their goals. I get great satisfaction seeing the physical difference and improvements in the calves, youngstock and overall system.

Emma Moore

Emma Moore - ForFarmers Youngstock Specialist

Having grown up on a beef and arable farm in Northern Ireland, I have always had a keen interest in agriculture. After graduating university, I worked on a 1,400 cow dairy unit in New Zealand and over time I have developed a particular interest in youngstock rearing and how to maximise a farm’s profitability by rearing high quality herd replacements. In 2018, I joined ForFarmers as a Youngstock Specialist and I now cover Lancashire and Yorkshire. I am also interested in transition cow nutrition and its significant impact on calf performance.
