Rural Technical Team

At PGG Wrightson, we recognise the importance of working alongside our clients

Our Technical team members specialise in agronomy and veterinary science and help strengthen the technical advice delivered on-farm by PGG Wrightson Technical Field Representatives. 

We employ more than 100 dedicated Technical Field Representatives who are able to work with our specialist Rural Technical Team to help deliver a high level of technical knowledge and experience on-farm and an in-depth understanding of our customers’ business.

Through regular training, working with technical specialists and leveraging our relationships across the various regions we operate in, we're able to provide advice to help grow more grass, increase stock live-weight, evaluate feed and nutrition options, assess animal health issues, review and provide ideas on growing crops and maximising crop and pasture yields.

For on-farm technical advice on feed budgeting, soil fertility, animal health and more, talk to your local Technical Field Representative who can work with the Technical Team to deliver quality solutions.
