An engineer graduated from ISAB (Institute for agricultural studies in Beauvais), he holds a specialization degree in animal nutrition from the university of Leuven (Belgium).
He is a specialist for nutrition of ruminants, and in particular of dairy cows. After an experience in the field selling feed and minerals to dairy farmers, he chose to become a consultant. He thus joined the service company* as a technical manager ruminants.
During 10 years, he offered his services as an expert to French and foreign customers of feed manufacturers. This experience allowed him to apprehend many feeding and cultivation systems (mountains, plains, grassland systems,…).
