Integrating innovative TECHnologies along the value Chain to improve small ruminant welfARE management

TechCare’s People: Ailsa Thomson!

I reveived my Batchelor of Science in Agriculture from the university of Glasgow in 2016, studying at SRUC Craibstone. During my studies I completed several work experience placements and lambing jobs, including a summer placement at SRUC’s Hill and Mountain Research Centre at Kirkton, which inspired me to work as a research technician after leaving university. Since then, I have worked as a technician at SRUC’s dairy research farm in Dumfries as well as an AI technician, before joining the team at Kirkton last March as a technician. In my spare time, I enjoy hill waking with my dog in the local area. In the TechCare team I will mainly be involved in the implementation of the pilots at Kirkton, starting with the winter feeding trial.
