Rob co-founded LLM Farm Vets in Lancs where he continues in practice today.

Passionate about wildlife, the environment and opportunities within farming to bolster both, has led him to implement a range of novel services including ‘Integrated Parasite Management’ which focuses on dung beetles to engage even those not naturally predisposed to digging through pats or thinking about worms!

He has brought together an array of experts in this field to found the ‘Dung Beetle Trust’ which will compliment and expand the excellent work of DBFF.

Rob sees sustainable parasite control as an obvious entry point for vets to engage with less obvious areas such as biodiversity action plans, surveys and soil health services.

A 2021 Nuffield Scholar, exploring the role of farm vets have in regenerative agriculture will feed other roles within Vet Sustain, VetPartners and COWS to inspire and enable vets to play a successful role in agricultural transition.
