3.5 year

What's your favourite Lely product, and why?
That is quite a tough question. Lely have developed some amazing products to benefit not only farmers but with great benefits for the cow too.
I think for me I would have to say the astronaut as it allows the cow to express her natural behavior and provides some really invaluable data on an individual cow basis allowing farmers to identify and treat any health issues early.

What do you do in your spare time?
I am a mum of 3 girls so much of my spare time is taken up with them competing their ponies They have also just got keen on showing calves! My husband is also a farmer and he has very kindly delegated accounts and office work to me, I certainly do not have time to watch TV!

Best moment of working at LCM?
There have been many great moments for me, I love watching a farm go from conventional to automation and so each start up is a best moment for me.

If you were an animal, what would you be?
Cesca’s dog!!! Who wouldn’t love a life like her spaniels!! I would probably be one that chases its tail though! lol
