Elaine welcomed as new Society Director

Friday, January 9, 2015

BGS and its supporters from across the industry are welcoming Elaine Jewkes into her new role as Society Director.

Starting in the role this January Elaine said “It is a real honour to take on this role and I’m stepping into it looking enthusiastically forward – with a few nerves here and there! – to the challenges and opportunities that it entails. BGS is well-placed to be at the centre of livestock agriculture, particularly at a time when economic volatility and environmental pressures should make grass and forage important in every system. I am very excited about the future for BGS and look forward to working with all members from across the farming sectors, research and allied industry to grow the fantastic organisation that is our Society. BGS remains unique in that it brings together these three interrelated groups and in doing it so has much to offer”.

Elaine is looking forward to meeting many members during the events of the coming months and discussing your thoughts about the Society.


BGS Members BGS is a membership organisation which acts as a communication forum, through events and publications, for the profitable and sustainable use of grass and forage.
