BSc (Hons) Agricultural Business Management

Connor Smith

Ruminant Technical Support Manager

“As a UCR undergraduate I was encouraged to develop my own ideas, further my knowledge and work independently.

“I’m keen to do research which is useful to farmers, so I studied antibiotic resistance to mastitis for my BSc dissertation and presented my findings at the British Undergraduate Research Conference.  I studied for my BSc and Master’s degrees alongside a full time position as dairy herd manager, so I was able to apply my learning in practice.

“I’m now working for a global leader in animal pharmaceuticals and my role is to support the metabolic health of dairy cows and other ruminants. I gather evidence from farmers and vets, interpret the data and recommend diet supplements if necessary. It’s a great job and I really enjoy it.”
