New Faces at GA
Several new faces have joined the GA team in recent months.
Joining our Sales team based in Gippsland is Nathan Mugavin. Nathan will have the responsibility of servicing members and customers mainly in the East and West Gippsland regions working alongside Gerard Brislin. He has previously worked at Nationwide AB and gained his on-farm knowledge whilst working at Wollaston Farms owned by the Harlock Family and at Purnim Holsteins with Anthony and Wendy Eccles.
Our new Animal Health and Export Coordinator is Felicity Searle. Felicity or Flick as she is known joins us from Western Australia and has a Batchelor of Science majoring in Animal Health and Animal Science from the Murdoch University in WA. She completed an Animal Research Honours degree in 2019 looking at ways to improve conception rates using sexed semen. She is was a finalist in the Young Dairy Scientist Award at the Australian Dairy Conference in 2019. Flick will be instrumental in ensuring the Genetics Australia bull population remains compliant with the strict health conditions required for a bull to stand at the Genetics Australia quarantine facility and in exporting documentation for the growing demand in genetic exports.
Brianna Aldred and Julianne Davis-Cooke (picutred below) join our Farm and Production team assisting in semen collection, bull management and semen processing while Glen Saliba (pictured below) is our courier driver and despatch assistant delivering product in all Victorian regions weekly.
While we welcome all the new team member, we also recently farewelled Sales Manager Mike Huth and Animal Health Coordinator Megan Beca. Both made significant contributions to their time at GA and we wish them well in their new endeavours.
