Alice comes to us as a University of Sydney Animal and Veterinary Bio science graduate with a particular interest in large animal production. She has a strong passion for animal health and welfare, spending a significant portion of my time in the country working with livestock and leading to my major in Animal Health, Disease and Welfare.
