Senior Arable Specialist

Biography

Biography

Growing up on a family farm in North Yorkshire - Marianne had an early introduction to handling livestock and driving tractors.

She arrived in journalism more by accident than design. After studying for a degree in Agricultural and Environmental Science with honours in Animal Science at Newcastle University she went on to complete a Masters in Animal Nutrition at Aberdeen University.

Her career began formulating animal rations at what was then BOCM Pauls - now ForFarmers - in Ipswich.

After three years she decided she preferred words to numbers and began her journalism career on the Holstein Friesian Journal.

A four-year stint at Farmers Weekly (we don't judge) followed before she took a diversion out of agriculture, working on trade magazines in the medical and textile sectors.

Today she feels back in her natural home – agriculture has that way of drawing you back – as senior arable specialist at Briefing Media.
