Dr Malcolm Crabtree

Malcolm is the contact with the past for the Advisory Forum; a founder director of MDC and past Chairman of the Research Committee, with a life- long interest in dairy research, he retired from full-time farming in 2011 after managing a diversified Estate in Hampshire for 20 years.

Prior to this he worked for ADAS throughout England and Wales for almost two decades, having also served on Government Foresight Committees, undertaken study tours in USA, Yugoslavia and Spain. 

Malcolm is keen to see more UK based dairy science as opposed to reliance on overseas research. He is a strong believer in high welfare and health standards for dairy cows believing performance will follow.
