Prior to writing for a major agricultural title for eight years, Jonathan was an auctioneer in the West Country where alongside his passion for sheep farming, he developed a love and deep knowledge of all things livestock.
Jonathan is account manager for most of mooandbaa’s PR clients including the Texel Sheep Society, Newark Livestock Market, NBA’s Beef Expo and the British Wool Marketing Board. With his vast knowledge of sheep farming, he also manages our pedigree sheep clients. Jonathan has won various journalism awards such as YARA Livestock Journalist of the Year and runner up in the NOAH Animal Health Journalist of the Year.
Jonathan is also editor of the quarterly publication Sheep and Beef Producer and has also been called upon to commentate on various livestock issues for both regional and national press and television.
Married to co-director Chrissie and father to Sophie, Jonathan is also a keen sheep farmer running small flocks of pedigree Southdown and Hampshire Down sheep alongside a commercial flock.
Things that make Jonathan smile: A good rugby match, a nice drop of Rioja and lambs skipping in the sunshine.
