Animal pharmaceuticals company Elanco has appointed Jack Fellows as its new swine sales leader for the UK and Ireland. His position will involve offering solutions and support for pig farmers when it comes to gut health and antibiotic reduction.
“The pig industry is set to face several challenges in the near future, with the upcoming zinc ban and uncertainty around high feed prices, and I believe Elanco is well placed to support the industry in rethinking current options and providing the tools needed to shift strategies accordingly,” said Mr Fellows.
He joins Elanco from Anpario, where he worked as technical sales manager across all species. Earlier in his career he fulfilled various roles at Duffield’s Animal Feeds, within sales, quality assurance and the company’s pig bed and breakfast unit.
“I hope that my involvement in the swine industry will help to provide value throughout the supply chain, working alongside vets and farmers to deliver the tools and advice required to help sustainably maintain healthy pigs, with a particular focus on improving piglet gut health,” he added.
Mr Fellows will be supported by Elanco’s principal technical adviser, Dr. Lic. Frédéric Vangroenweghe, and technical nutrition consultant, Agustina Rodriguez, making up a highly experienced team of professionals, who will help producers stay ahead of antibiotic targets while maintaining profitability.
