Angela started working for Farmers Guardian in 2003 on a freelance basis. She joined the staff in 2011 and is currently acting head of livestock, covering maternity leave, and also head of livestock sales and markets.
This involves attending conferences, technical events as well as shows and sales to source the content for these sections to ensure that readers are provided with the most up-to- date information to help them run their business and news about what is happening in the sector.
She says the best part of the job is getting out on-farm and meeting farmers who are passionate about what they do.
When not working Angela spends time on the family’s small farm in Yorkshire with her own sheep and horses.
