A WORLD leader in animal digestive welfare development has confirmed growth to its sales team in the UK.

A graduate from Harper Adams University College, and previously employed at the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board, 29-year-old Tom grew up on his family’s mixed farm in Lincolnshire, before spending six years working there full-time.
He has his own sheep flock of 120 sheep, predominantly of North Country Mule and Suffolk breed.
Tom’s extended family also have pedigree Hereford and British Blue cattle. Together with Tom and his wife, they are one of the first breeders in the UK of Dutch Spotted sheep.
Tom, a former NFU branch chairman, and past winner of the NFYFC Senior Member of the Year, will be supporting the sales team with events, developing campaigns, researching sector prospects and taking an active role in technical and product information enquiries.
He said: “I am delighted to be joining Agrimin at a really exciting time in the company’s growth.
