The entire Cogent team was thrilled to extend a warm welcome to Dan Carroll of STGenetics at Heywood House today.
Marking his first visit to the UK since 2019, Dan, Dairy Program Coordinator at STGenetics, immersed himself in various facets of our business during his stay, generously sharing his wealth of knowledge, expertise, and a touch of humor with our dedicated colleagues.
The visit unfolded within the bustling atmosphere of our staff hub, where all personnel gathered for a brew and donut. Steering the session was Dan, who led an engaging presentation illuminating current and forthcoming developments at STGenetics. Emphasis was placed on the enduring significance of EcoFeed and PrecisionDNA, setting the tone for future advancements. The ensuing discussion was marked by a vibrant exchange of questions and insights, expertly navigated by Dan. This interactive forum not only provided the team with valuable insights into the intricacies of STGenetics but also facilitated the establishment of personal connections with Dan, fostering a sense of camaraderie among colleagues.
Day two saw Dan visit the Beachin Stud, where he was warmly welcomed by both the stud and lab team.
