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!

Chris Luckhurst - BVM&S MRCVS

Chris qualified from Edinburgh in 1984 and after an initial stint in Newquay settled in Callington. He has a wealth of experience across all species. He is a member of the British Cattle Veterinary Association, the Sheep Veterinary Society, the British Equine Veterinary Association and the Goat Veterinary Society.

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.  When not working or running around after a small child she can be found singing, playing her double bass or surfing.


We are pleased to have welcomed Lucie to our team of farm vets in July 2017.  She qualified from the University of Glasgow 's faculty of Veterinary Medicine.  In her spare time she enjoys both outdoor and indoor hockey, occasionally stepping up as umpire. She also hopes to try her hand at surfing.

Jenn qualified from the Royal Veterinary College in London in 2017 and has been a welcome addition to our farm team.  Prior to starting vet school she has worked worldwide across the USA and Asia, not to mention having worked five lambing seasons and as a relief milker. Originally from Yorkshire, she enjoys hiking, camping, travelling to hot countries and scuba diving and is looking forward to exploring Cornwall.

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. He is interested in all aspects of farm animal medicine. He spends his free time with his dog and cat, and enjoys exploring the countryside.


Sally graduated from the University of Glasgow in 2020 and came to join our Farm Team shortly after.  Prior to starting work she spent her summer as a relief milker, working both at a large rotary and on a small family-run farm.  Originally from Scotland, she enjoys all things outdoors, especially hill walking and running.  She looks forward to exploring Cornwall with her dog Juno.

Joao - VetMed MRCVS

Originally from Coimbra, Portugal, Joao has worked as a cattle vet for the last 6 years. In 2017, after working in Sao Miguel Azores (Portugal) and Ireland, Joao decided to come to the UK to start work in Somerset, before settling here in Cornwall. He has a particular interest in cattle nutrition, cattle genomics and herd health planning. In his free time he likes fishing and running.


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.

Stefan - MRCVS

Stefan graduated in 2012 from the University of Veterinary Science of Bucharest, Romania.  Since graduating he has worked with production animals, especially pigs.  In 2016 he moved to the UK, and has worked as a TB Tester and farm vet since.  In his spare time he likes to go to the gym and enjoys days out with his family.
