My background started in rural mid Devon with my family working within agriculture and myself at North Park Vets at North Tawton. During the school holidays and weekends, I always devoted my time to working on local farms to gain useful experience with cattle. After two years at Bicton College of Agriculture, in 1994 I took up an assistant herdsman role in Cornwall where I received my first training in the Dutch Five Step hoof trimming method. Now I am a full-time professional hoof trimmer and have achieved the NACFT Diploma in cattle hoof care.

At home, there is a dog called Morph, and Fred my horse happily ensures any free time is spent with him!

I am “Dedicated to Excellence with the Delaware large animal team to achieve the highest level of hoof health for our dairy cows”.
