Impressed farmer honours call centre worker by naming calf after her

That’s because a member of staff impressed a customer so much he named a calf after her.

 

Megan Humphreys was organising a new energy deal for Orkney-based farmer Steven Wylie when he decided to bestow the honour.

 

Megan, a customer relationship manager at Love Energy Savings, explained: “Steven has been with us since 2017 so we have a good relationship with him.

 

“We were chatting on the call and I mentioned how much I love animals, especially cows. So he promised me that the next calf to be born would be called Megan Junior.

 

“Within two minutes of the call ending he sent me a photo of the calf being born and said, ‘Please welcome to the world Megan Jnr’.”

 

The 22-year-old added: “I’ve still got the photo saved and it was such a thrill to have her named after me. Not many people can say that.

 

“Steven sends me updates of her and also pictures, which is just amazing!”

Swartland Farm – close to the village of Dounby on Mainland Orkney – specialises in livestock and boasts a herd of Limousin Angus cross cattle.

 

The remote Orkneys, 10 miles off the north coast of Scotland, comprise 70 islands of which 20 are inhabited.

 

Steven, 38, said: “Megan was great to deal with and when she mentioned she loved animals I decided it would be fitting to show my appreciation for all her help.

“We were calving at the time and I thought that naming one of the new arrivals after her would be nice – and two minutes later Megan Junior came into the world.”

 

Love Energy Savings executive Mike Edwards said: “This has to be one of the most unusual displays of appreciation from a customer – but one of the best.

 

“We’re delighted that Megan Snr helped Steven to secure the best tariff for the farm and really happy to hear that Megan Jnr is doing so well.
