Tash Meredith and her daughter Sophie are passionate about helping farmers breed healthy, happy cows. Tash thinks she has inseminated more than 100,000 cows during her career.
“To be an AB technician you have to have an interest in farming and a basic knowledge of cows. It’s amazing how much breeding can affect the profitability and productivity of an entire farm business. It’s an important time of the year for dairy farmers.”
As well as working as an AB technician, Tash also works on the family farm where they milk 550, predominately Friesian cows.
“It’s a busy lifestyle, but I enjoy the work we do,” says Tash. “CRV has been great to work for. They’re a bit smaller than their competitors and as a result they’re really focused on their customer service and doing the best job for their farmer customers.”
