I think our biggest challenge is to not take our biggest opportunity.
I enjoy inspiring people, challenging the boundaries of excellence through science-based knowledge in order to create a better future for animals and humans alike. My passion is ruminants and improving the ruminant industry.
I have been around agriculture all my life – I am originally from the Northern Cape where my passion for the beef and sheep industries started. After completing my BSc(Agric) degree in animal science at the University of the Free State, I entered the ruminant industry where I have since worked with all ruminant species. I joined Chemuniqué as ruminant technical adviser in 2015, and I am currently focusing on the feedlot industry, as well as intensive and extensive beef and sheep operations.
I believe in optimising efficiency and productivity through management and nutrition-based solutions using a holistic team approach that will help us to identify the biggest business problems, which will improve the profitability and create more sustainable agricultural businesses.
