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.
