RCVS-Recognised Specialist in Cattle Health and Production

Clinical Associate

James qualified from Bristol Veterinary School in 1998 and after 5 years in predominantly dairy practice, returned to Bristol to do a PhD on aspects of mastitis control. He obtained the RCVS Diploma in Cattle Health and Production in 2008 and attained RCVS Recognised Specialist status in 2009.

He currently divides his time between working as a dairy vet at the Orchard Veterinary Group in Glastonbury, an Associate Professor at the University of Nottingham School of Veterinary Medicine and Science, as well as working with Andrew and the team at QMMS. James is able to provide consultancy and specialist advice on aspects of milk recording, mastitis control and herd health with particular emphasis on data analysis, and was part of the team that developed the national AHDB Dairy Mastitis Control Plan.

At home James enjoys spending as much time as possible with his two sons (two-thirds of the future Welsh back row with any luck), watching as much rugby as he can and having a quiet beer with other tired dads...
