Graeme (aka GP) joined the Livestock Performance Team in early 2014. After gaining some early veterinary skills on the family sheep farm in North Canterbury, he gained his veterinary degree from Massey University in 1986. He spent the next 3 years in dairy practice in Taranaki being further educated by the farmers there. Then he “toured” with the All Blacks through Wales and Ireland before settling into mixed practice in Somerset, UK for 2 years at the height of the BSE (Mad Cow Disease) epidemic. He then came home to Canterbury and has been primarily in dairy cattle practices ever since. A grizzled veteran all-rounder he can hold his own in the front row, but recently has been Healthy Hoofing it on the wing.
