Alistair Smith

Veterinarian
Alistair grew up on a dairy farm in Ayrshire, Scotland and graduated from the University of Glasgow in 2016.  Once he graduated he moved over to the east coast of Scotland to Angus, where he worked in mixed practice for three and half years before joining us in our Ashburton clinic. He had always been interested in working on New Zealand farms with large grass based herds and so this role is an exciting prospect for him. He has spent his whole life in agriculture and since qualifying as a vet has worked in mixed practices. He enjoys all aspects of practice and in particular tackling unnecessary losses on the farm, as happy cows make for a happy farmer. As well as tackling new challenges every day and meeting new people along with learning about different farming systems. Outside of work he enjoys playing rugby, exploring New Zealand and taking advantage of a few beers in the sun.
