The poultry industry has great respect for vets and understands the importance of our support. The industry is leading the way in livestock production, welfare and antibiotic reduction and it’s an exciting time to be part of it. Working at St David’s I enjoy the opportunity to challenge my peers and bring forward new ideas into the team directly to the owners. Working within a private practice gives me the opportunity to progress in my career and gain potential new responsibility within practice.”
