Dr Nigel Brown | Northern Tablelands Local Land Services

Dr Nigel Brown, , Northern Tablelands Local Land Services

Nigel comes from a long line of vets – his great-grandfather qualified from Edinburgh in the 1800’s –and he grew up on a 2,000 head dairy herd in England. Since graduating from Liverpool, UK, in 1975, Nigel has earned a Master’s degree in Tropical Animal Health and Production, joined the Animal Welfare Chapter of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists and worked in more than 30 different countries. He was partner in a mixed practice in Cornwall, UK, for ten years until returning to the Middle East to work with gazelle breeding and reintroduction in Saudi Arabia and then oiled birds after the first Gulf War.

After marrying his Australian wife, Robyn, Nigel worked in Bombala RLPB before returning to the Middle East as MLA Livestock Services Manager to improve welfare standards for live exports to the Middle East and Africa. Apart from locum tenens in various countries, his roles and consultancies have included disease control and epidemiology, meat hygiene, animal production, animal welfare, veterinarian and herder training, rural development and border security in countries as diverse as Bahrain, Bulgaria, Ethiopia, Morocco, Sudan, Turkey, Vietnam and Yemen. Before returning to Australia, Nigel’s last overseas position was four and half years in Mongolia where he assisted the Ministry of Agriculture and local herders to improve standards across the spectrum of veterinary activities, also working for FAO in the emergency response to the 2009-10 dzud where the national livestock mortality was almost 25%. He has ridden across Gobi on horse-back and completed other long-distance rides. He joined Northern Tablelands LLS in 2015. Nigel comes from a long line of vets – his great-grandfather qualified from Edinburgh in the 1800’s –and he grew up on a 2,000 head dairy herd in England.
