Zoetis vet stands for election to Allied Industry Group
6th Dec 2017 / By Digby Scott
Allied trades are now fielding eight candidates in the NPA elections. Latest to toss her high-achiever hat in the ring is Zoetis national veterinary manager Laura Hancox.
‘Eight years in the industry may be short compared to other candidates,' she says, ‘but they have been filled with all things pig!'
After graduating as a vet, Laura completed a PhD researching pre- and post-weaning diarrhoea and after receiving her doctorate spent three years working as a vet in a pig specialist practice in southwest England.
‘My current role exposes me to the whole industry as I work with practicing pig vets, producers, big integrators and supermarket representatives… and I still spend time on farm and in the abattoir,' she says in her election address.
‘I would love to offer my services and hope my experience as a scientist, vet and pharmaceutical manager will assist the NPA with their good work.’
