Harper Adams graduate Nicola Hares has joined the NMR Group’s business development team with responsibility for overseeing the development of disease surveillance services.
Since graduating with a BSc (Hons) degree in business management and marketing Nicola has worked as marketing and PR manager at Newbury Racecourse and more recently she has helped to manage the family dairy herd of 250 Holsteins in north Shropshire.
In 2013, she was awarded a Tesco Sustainable Dairy Group travel scholarship that took her to North America for three weeks to study transition cow management.
The NMR Group is structured on three wholly owned subsidiary businesses that reflect the sectors in which it operates: National Milk Records, National Milk Laboratories (NML) and National Livestock Records.
One of Nicola’s key projects will be working on the development of NML’s new BVD surveillance programme. She will also be involved with a range of Johne’s surveillance services.
