Growing up on a farm and feedlot operation gave Russ a passion for livestock so the agricultural sector was a natural fit after a career in the Armed Forces.
He has held a variety of leadership roles in sales and market development with ProBeef Australia, Ridley AgriProducts and Elders Limited. He has spearheaded the market development of Ceva’s key ruminant reproduction products Regulin and reproPlus™ since 2010, working extensively with research partners to realise the benefits of the products for Australian producers.
Russ lives in Melbourne with his wife Pennie. He travels extensively to support his territory managers; to Europe where Regulin has been used for many years; and more recently to China, where he is responding to market demand for products that improve production.

Tony joins the Regulin team from Nutrien in Rural Merch Narrandera, his career also spanning the pharmaceutical, motor vehicle and grain handling sectors.
Tony spent his childhood in a hastily-renovated shearers’ quarters on his grandparents’ place just south of Wagga Wagga, so the smell of a shearing shed always feels like home. Tony has been licked, bitten, thrown, kicked, stood on by every kind of farm animal at one stage or another; and he’s fed, watered, wormed, vaccinated, cleaned and nurtured every one of them as well.
Having attended Yanco Ag High and Hawkesbury Agricultural College, a career in Ag was always on the cards. He describes Regulin as a great opportunity to play a vital role contributing to farmers’ success. Especially during this perfect storm, when the national flock is at its lowest level for years, lamb prices are at record highs and the drought is pretty well behind us.
Tony lives at Ganmain, the sheaf hay capital of NSW. It’s a thriving town with a population of just 500 and the best pies in Australia!

Mitch grew up on a sheep station just north of Wentworth on the Darling River and as a 4th generation farmer has a passion for anything to do with sheep. After attending boarding school in Adelaide and a six-month cricket tour of England, Mitch returned to work at Walpeup in the Victorian Mallee.
More recently Mitch crossed the border to manage a farm purchased by his family between Bordertown and Naracoorte in South Australia; and has had success adopting new farming techniques. Mitchell uses Regulin in his own flock, which has increased his passion for managing sheep reproduction programs.
In his spare time Mitch trains kelpies, plays football and cricket and enjoys talking about sheep.
