Andrew and his wife Kate (also a vet) founded Quality Milk Management Services in early 2005, with the aim of establishing a laboratory and consultancy service for the dairy industry, focussed on providing a flexible approach that added value to laboratory results.

Andrew qualified from Cambridge Veterinary School in 1993 and after two years in dairy practice returned to University to do a PhD investigating novel approaches to mastitis vaccination. Since gaining his PhD and further clinical qualifications Andrew has been active in mastitis research. As well as being Director of QMMS, Andrew also holds the post of Clinical Reader in Dairy Production Medicine at the University of Nottingham School of Veterinary Medicine and Science.

Andrew currently has no spare time - much to Kate and his 3 children's disgust!
