Mr Neil MacKintosh
I am the animal science teaching fellow for the Advanced Training Partnership (ATP), based in Aberystwyth University. ATP is a flexible postgraduate programme providing workshops and distance learning modules to people working with and within the UK's beef, sheep and dairy supply chains. The programme, which is a partnership between IBERS, Bangor University and NIAB, develops and delivers training which both meets the needs of industry and incorporates research findings from the partners.

My research interests have primarily focused on the use of yeast as a feed additive in the finishing of beef cattle, and the development of molecular tests for detecting anthelmintic resistant liver fluke (Fasciola hepatica) in cattle and sheep. I am currently working alongside research group (also based in IBERS, Aberystwyth University) and Aberystwyth University's Commercialisation Services in order to make these molecular tests commercially available.
