Stuart Childs

Stuart is from Mitchelstown in Co. Cork. Having qualified from UCD with a BAgrSc (Animal Science), he completed a PhD in Animal Science with Teagasc and UCD investigating the role of fatty acid nutrition on fertility in cattle under the direction of Professors David Kenny, Joe Sreenan and Michael Diskin graduating in 2008. Following nine months in the Animal Biotech Department in Teagasc Moorepark working on immune response to mastitis infection, Stuart worked for 10 years as a Dairy Advisor in East Limerick based in Kilmallock and subsequently in the Mallow and Moorepark areas. He has recently taken on the role of dairy specialist for the South Western region continuing to be based in Moorepark. Stuart is very interested in maximising milk production performance through maximum use of grass, the role of technology in improving all levels of farm management and the potential of these areas to drive social, environmental and financial sustainability at farm level. Stuart also runs a dairy farm along with his father William just outside Mitchelstown supplying nearby Dairygold Coop.
