Meet The Team
Pig Production Manager
The BQP Agriculture business has been successfully operating since 1979 and has over that time developed a culture of long-standing relationships with both our farmers, customers, suppliers and employees. I have worked for the company for nearly 33 years, Richard Gooding our grower farms manager 27 years and Mark Jagger 25 years. Across our teams of fieldstaff, vets, technical and trials, and admin and finance staff you find a similar picture.
However, to balance the experienced members of the team we have invested strongly into employing a number of talented youngsters in the business some of whom have made it through to management level and some starting on their way as apprentices. This matches our culture with our farming partners, looking after those long-standing farmers fairly, whilst recruiting new talent for the future that will take the business forward. All our thinking is driven off long term relationships and agreements with our customers that gives us the stability to plan long term and invest wisely for the future. This long-term thinking leads to a family culture within the business for the employees and farmers – some of whom we have successfully worked with for 3 generations and supported their businesses to grow significantly. If you decide to progress with a grower building, we look forward to you joining the team!
