New Consultant Appointment for Sherborne Office

Colin Robertson has joined the Sherborne office of The Farm Consultancy Group as a Consultant.

After graduation in 1999 with a BSc Agric (Hons), Colin moved to America where he designed, built and managed two 1,700 cow high yielding herds plus youngstock for an absentee owner including a team of 35 Hispanics.

From there he moved to Australia where he managed 3,500 cows plus followers on a grazing platform milked through two 50 point rotaries with a transient team of 30 predominantly back packers.

In the UK, Colin worked as a farm consultant for two years for a national consultancy company and has managed herds of all types from organic to high yielding herds and until recently milked his own herd of 270 pedigree Holsteins on a 5 year FBT.

Colin’s expertise covers all dairy farming operations large or small with particular emphasis on nutrition, cow comfort, fertility, protocols, staff management, milking machine troubleshooting and financial planning.

Colin will provide a wealth of practical experience and knowledge on all aspects of dairying and will ideally complement the existing skills within our expanding team in Sherborne.
