Meet the Team - Farm Vets

Stuart Gough - BVM&S MRCVS

Stuart has been with the practice since qualifying from Edinburgh in 1993. As the practice has evolved over the years his primary clinical role has become farm orientated. As farm vets our main task is to ensure that the meat and milk which reaches your kitchen from British Farms is safe and produced to the highest standards of Welfare. Outside work he enjoys turning our British Farm produce into food to be enjoyed over a glass of foreign wine!

Miranda - BVSc MRCVS

Miranda has been with the practice since qualifying from Liverpool University in 2003 and has been part time since coming back from maternity leave in 2013.  An experienced mixed practice vet, she has a particular interest in all things Sheep and is an active member of the Sheep Veterinary Society.  She also enjoys working with camelids, and has a keen interest in udder health and mastitis management in dairy cattle.  When not working or running around after a small child she can be found singing, playing her double bass or surfing.

Michael Head (Spike) - BVetMed BSc CertCHP DBR MRCVS

Spike joined Calweton in 2021. For the last 17 years he has been a director in a large dairy practice in Somerset. Michael was awarded the RCVS Certificate in Cattle Health and Production (CertCHP) in 2001, and the Diploma of Bovine Reproduction (DBR) in 2010. He oversees the training courses at the practice, having particular interest in AI courses and lameness.  Whilst at college he travelled to Kenya and Trinidad to undertake human and veterinary related projects and to this end became a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society (FRGS).  Whilst not at work he plays tennis, enjoys walking, bird watching and listening to classical music.


Lucie has been part of the farm vet team since July 2017, joining Calweton after qualifying from the University of Glasgow’s Faculty of Veterinary Medicine and moving down to Cornwall.  She is interested in all aspects of farm animal medicine and particularly enjoys working with both beef and dairy cattle.  In her spare time she enjoys all things outdoors; playing hockey, surfing and exploring Cornwall and Devon with her two dogs, Angus and Jura. 

Jenn - BVetMed MRCVS

Jenn joined the Calweton farm team in 2017 after graduating from the Royal Veterinary College, London. With a keen interest in goats, camelids and sheep, Jenn takes a leading role with our small holder clients - when she isn’t too busy with all other aspects of farm vetting! Outside of work Jenn enjoys surfing, hiking and exploring Cornwall with her dog, Bear. 


Emma graduated from the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Medicine and Surgery, Edinburgh in 2001. Her Devonian roots and the pull of home brought her south, venturing across the Tamar to her first job in Bodmin, initially within a mixed practice, but very quickly she realised her love was with farm work, and in particular dairy and beef cattle.  Her main interests are cattle health and productivity, fertility, and young stock management.  More recently she has also become increasingly interested in bull fertility.  Emma works part time and can often be found helping out on her other half’s beef and sheep farm in Wadebridge.  If there is any more time in the day for some down time, she enjoys cycling, swimming, horse riding and Zumba.

Eddie - MRCVS

Eddie qualified as a vet in Romania in 2013 and has been in the UK since 2016.  He has worked for various practices in Devon and Cornwall and joined the Calweton Farm Team in 2020.
