Amanda Watson

NFU Livestock board co-optee

Amanda farms in North Yorkshire on a finishing beef and sheep farm alongside working as Livestock Specialist for Woodhead Bros (Morrisons) since graduating from Harper Adams University in 2020.

She grew up on an upland/hill farm in the Durham Dales where her brothers and parents are running a 200 cow suckler herd and lambing 800 ewes. This is where her passion for livestock began.

Amanda is passionate about improving efficiency in the livestock industry and hopes to learn more about how to drive this by meeting new people from a range of backgrounds.

In 2023, Amanda was also one of the NFU's Student and Young Farmer ambassadors.
