Ian joined the practice in 1992 to develop his interest in dairy herd medicine (in particular mastitis, reproduction and other economically important diseases), clinical medicine, obstetrics and surgery. He also enjoys dealing with emergency problems in horses, alpacas, dogs and cats.
Ian is married to Geraldine and has two adult daughters. In his spare time he enjoys skiing, hunting, fishing, a glass of red with dinner and barracking for the Bombers. He has reluctantly given up his regular morning run and begun walking his dog Bella instead, but is hopeful this is only a temporary arrangement!
