Catherine Raine joined the team in 2016. She has strong experience in farm and animal health provisions and is a registered R-SQP. Catherine also works on her family-run hill farm.
A regular day for Catherine involves visiting farmers to ensure their needs are being met, attending auction marts and silage sampling. The most interesting part of her job, she says, is watching new generations of farmers come through with fresh ideas and passion for new technology.
Catherine puts her success in her role down to good communication skills, the ability to solve problems and a good sense of humour.
In her spare time, Catherine enjoys showing her flock of Suffolk and Swaledale sheep at local shows.
