The NFU has appointed Tom Glen as its new poultry adviser. Glen was previously an account manager with ABN’s commercial poultry team, looking after one of its key broiler accounts.
The NFU’s chief poultry adviser Aimee Mahony said: “Tom brings with him valuable experience from the poultry industry and plenty of enthusiasm and passion for the role and I’m pleased to have him on board.”
Glen grew up in Northamptonshire and studied biology in Leeds, before getting into agriculture via a piglet nutrition trial as his final year research project. The project was sponsored by AB Agri, and Glen then joined the company’s graduate scheme in 2014.
Glen then moved to the ABN poultry team in a technical support capacity. He worked on farm to support customers to problem solve, sort out feed complaints, and weigh chickens. From there, he moved into performance data and then join the commercial poultry team as an account manager.
