Working mainly with large intensive dairy farms of Cheshire and beyond, Stuart is particularly involved in troubleshooting high-input dairy herd performance and enjoys challenging traditional ideas on the monitoring and economics of dairy herds. Since 2013 he has been an alternative resident with the European College of Bovine Health Management, based at Nantwich Farm Vets.

Among many dairy-related interests, Stuart likes to question whether veterinarians are as good (or as valuable) as we think we are, and wonders how this should affect our approach to both individual cases and herd management.

He is a member of the British Cattle Veterinary Association and American Association of Bovine Practitioners and enjoys discussing ideas and learning from dairy farmers and vets from around the globe.
