ForFarmers has announced the appointment of Stephen Evans to the role of young animal feed specialist.
Having originally joined the company for a year-long work placement in 2021 through the AHDB Pig Industry Scholarship Scheme, he began his journey as a Sales Development Student. Throughout his placement at ForFarmers, Mr Evans supported a number of projects, including the VITAL Zinc free range which he worked on from conception to launch.
He recently graduated from Harper Adams University with a BSc (Hons) in agriculture and has gone on to win a number of awards, including the Harper Adams in Ireland WD Morrow Award and the ForFarmers Pig Industry Scholarship Award. Stephen was also recently honoured with the Victor Truesdale Prize for his huge contribution to university life at Harper Adams University.
He said: “I don’t come from an agriculture background, however through my study and placement at ForFarmers, I have obtained such a vast number of skills and knowledge and look forward to re-entering the industry as part of the ForFarmers team.”
Mr Evans will return to ForFarmers at the end of July and will provide technical sales support to customers.
