Duncan WilliamsI grew up on an arable farm in Essex but very quickly knew a career in livestock was for me. I graduated from the Royal Veterinary College, London, keen to learn as much as I could about the dairy industry on an international stage. I completed a year's internship at the University of Illinois, then moved into private dairy practice in South Island New Zealand where I spent two and a half years working as a primary vet on farms ranging from 150 to 5500 cows.
