Roger Evans and Tom Campbell have both been re-elected to the Board of First Milk by our Local Representative Group.
Tom was re-elected unopposed. He was first elected to the Board in 2004, and runs a 230-acre farm in West Kilbride, Ayrshire with 85 cows producing around 650,000 litres per year. In his capacity as a Local Representative, Tom represents the area of North Ayrshire, Clyde, Central and East.
Roger Evans was re-elected following a three-way contest. Roger has been a Director of First Milk since the company was formed in 2001 through the merger of Scottish Milk and Axis Milk, where Roger was Chairman.
Roger runs a 300-acre family farm in Shropshire with his son David and has a herd of 190 milkers plus followers. He is a well-known figure within the UK dairy industry and is an award-winning agricultural writer, regularly contributing to the Dairy Farmer magazine.
Tom said: "I am pleased to have been re-elected to the Board of First Milk. The success of this business is rooted in its understanding and response to farmer needs and I will continue to play my part to ensure farmers' interests are uppermost in the Board's decisions."
Roger added: "I am privileged to have been re-elected by our Local Representatives. These are changing times for the UK dairy industry and for First Milk members in particular, and it is very important that the farmer's voice shapes our business strategy."
