Sloan back again

COGENT sire analyst Drew Sloan is to return to Genus after two years with the Duke of Westminsters young bull testing programme.

Genus production director Steve Amies is pleased to welcome Mr Sloan back to Genus. "Drews experience in the genetics arena will be invaluable in building on the strengths of the Genus breeding programme," he says.

Cogent managing director Tim Heywood is appreciative of what Mr Sloan has done to get the Cogent testing programme going. But Mr Heywood feels it is now appropriate, given its size, to have a larger team responsible for the genetic programme. He is looking to appoint three new staff.
