Farm Administration

Angie

Angie will be well known – at least by voice – to all our farmers.  She is your first port of call for arranging visits, routines and TB tests and is also adept at managing calls should emergencies arise.  She has been with the practice since 2000 and whilst not a vet she is truly essential to the smooth running of the farm practice.

Chrissie

Our vet tech Chrissie has been assisting the farm team since 2015. With 15 years experience as a dairy farmer and now running a beef  unit, her experience with livestock is invaluable.  She carries out mobility and condition scoring, provides assistance at TB tests, and helps the vets with a wide range of tasks including ram breeding soundness examinations and surgical procedures. In addition she provides support to our office farm admin team.
