Josh Misselbrook’s journey to become a Livestock and Field Technician began after failing his A-levels. As the son of a research scientist from Rothamsted Research, he knew he wanted to work outside in agriculture and through his part time job at a dairy farm, he completed his agricultural apprenticeship.
When his current role was advertised at a place he had visited as a child with his Dad, he knew he had to go for it. He never thought he would be a crucial part of the research and innovation system.

Roles like Josh’s and the technical team are fundamental to the delivery of the research endeavour. That practical ability to make an experiment happen at scale or at small scale is what delivers the science here.
