Ms Becky James BSc MSc – Director, Technical Sales, Haygain
After graduating in Animal Science from the University of Nottingham, Becky pursued an MSc in Applied Equine Science at the Royal Agricultural University (RAU), Cirencester, England. At the RAU she was instrumental in developing the patented Haygain hay steaming technology, eventually joining the company in 2008.
Since joining Haygain, Becky has been in increasingly senior positions within Haygain, culminating in Director, Technical Sales.
Becky continues to carry out research in cooperation with the RAU and has jointly with the Dean of the School of Equine Management and Science at the RAU, published a number of peer reviewed papers. The research focused, among others, on the efficacy of comparative methods of cleaning hay as well as the effect that steaming has on the hay’s nutritional profile.
Having also worked for several years in competition yards, Becky represented England at British Young Rider International competitions and competed up to small tour level with two of her dressage horses who are now enjoying a happy retirement in the field and hacking around the Cotswolds.
