Aimee Mahony has been named Young Poultry Person of the Year at the Egg and Poultry Industry Conference (EPIC) 2019. Mahony studied Animal Behaviour and Welfare before graduating and now works for the National Farmers Union (NFU) as their poultry adviser.
On her win, Mahony said: “It is such an honour to receive the Young Poultry Person of the Year award at EPIC 2019. A huge thank you to those who nominated me, those who have supported me throughout my career and for all the wonderful wishes of congratulations. I’m truly overwhelmed.”
After graduating from Harper Adams University in 2012, Mahony took up a role as a graduate trainee manager with Noble Foods, before being promoted to auditor and then to regional contract supplies manager.
