Euan Fenwick   

Our Livestock Manager Euan has been with Cogent since 1998 and manages the team who care for the bulls at the stud. He manages the collection of product and works alongside the lab and sales team to meet demand.

"I have always had a keen interest in livestock since helping out with the family farm's suckler herd on the South side of Edinburgh. When I was 19 I went to work on an upland hill farm in Perthshire caring for 200 Charolais cross sucklers. The opportunity arose to join the Scottish Milk Marketing Board AI centre and I worked there with some of the best beef bulls in the country. When the chance came up to move to Chester to work for Cogent in 1998, I took the opportunity for a fresh challenge. 


There's never been a better time to join Cogent!
