  Andrew Cochrane BVSc    - Veterinarian

Andrew started here in early 2015 after a break from vet work travelling Europe. Graduating from Massey in 2010, he spent his first 3 and a half years working as a mixed animal vet in Oamaru, gaining a solid grounding in all aspects of veterinary work. Born and bred on a 1500ha sheep and beef farm near Clinton, the allure of the South (not so much the weather) has seen him make the pilgrimage back down to the picturesque landscape of Northern Southland. Andrew enjoys working with production animals most, especially sheep, beef and deer, but relishes the variety and intensive nature of dairy work, especially when it comes to surgery. He also enjoys consultancy and reproductive work of which he is an accredited in-calf provider. Outside of work Andrew loves being involved in sport (rugby, squash, tennis, touch rugby and social netball) getting into the great outdoors, water-skiing, travelling and playing guitar.
