#TNGBPeople: Tom Smith


Tom Smith, our Pricing Manager, explains the different external factors affecting his role at the moment.


What do you love about your role?

My initial background was in farming on a mixed beef, sheep and poultry farm. I then did an Open University course in Environmental Studies and have now worked in Analytical Services as a Lab Technician for over seven years.

I love the fact that my role is practical and makes a difference. By analysing forage and feed I am providing the farmer with the data needed so that anmial nutrition can be carefully formulated. I love the connection to the farm and the fact that my analysis can make a real contribution to animal productivity and health.

What advice would you give to someone interested in a career in science? 

There are lots of opportunities. Follow your heart and go for it!

Have the confidence to believe in yourself.
