Upon her appointment, Ms Troop said: “I’m excited to work closely with the team and build strong relationships with my customers across the broiler, layer, and swine industry, sharing knowledge of how our added value services and portfolio of products can support their needs.

“I’m pleased to say the monogastric industry has welcomed me with open arms, which is a good indication of how positive the industry is as a whole.

While each sector faces challenges, gaining exposure to these on-farm and at company level is vital.

“I hope my broad knowledge and understanding of the supply chain will allow me to provide added value to my customers, enabling them to further optimise animal performance through optimal intestinal health,” she added Ms Troop.

Polly Davies, UK & Ireland monogastric sales lead at Elanco said: “I’m delighted to have Josie on board.

“She brings enthusiasm and experience to the role that will help us to continue to provide producers with the high-quality products and service that they’ve come to expect.”
