Russ Carrington, who has been at the helm of the Pasture-Fed Livestock Association for the past six years, is responsible for overseeing the growth and development of the organisation as a strong and effective membership organisation.
Although Russ grew up on his family’s farm in Herefordshire he left to study Civil Engineering at Cardiff University and to follow a different career. However, after a few years of office life and a stint of international travel he decided to return to full-time farming. He brought with him a string of off-farm skills and a passion for embracing the challenges of food production in the 21st century.
He helped to manage Caplor Farm, a 326ha (800 acre) mixed farm in Herefordshire for nearly two years, before taking the opportunity to become executive secretary for the Pasture-Fed Livestock Association in 2012.
