Michelle Sprent

Michelle joined Premier Nutrition in 2010 with the primary focus of providing technical support in the Eastern European markets as well as supporting the supply of premixes into the UK on-farm home-mix sector. This role utilises her experience and interest in piglet starter feed formulation, production and sales as well as premix manufacture and on farm support. In addition Michelle is working closely with Brian Ashington on co-product feeding systems.

Michelle graduated from the University of Nottingham and then went on to complete an MSc in Pig Production at the University of Aberdeen.

On graduating from Aberdeen in 1999 she joined SCA NuTec as a trainee nutritionist. In this role Michelle was responsible for overseeing all aspects of the company’s piglet starter feed trials at their feed evaluation unit, including the raw material and finished product quality control schedule. This initial role gave Michelle an excellent grounding in piglet feed formulations and management as well as an in depth understanding of the raw materials used in starter feed and premix manufacture.

Michelle quickly became involved in the provision of technical support to the company’s export activities in Europe and the Far East working with pig producers/integrators and feed manufacturers. In 2001 Michelle was responsible for the launch of the company’s new venture into the game feed market. In more recent years Michelle also supported the sales of premixes to UK on-farm home mix customers.
