Camilla Rosman, Product Manager for VikingRed, has loved animals for as long as she can remember. Growing up in Västerås, Sweden, she has been close with horses since she was young.
Camilla’s first steps with cattle came when she was 19. She worked at a beef cattle station in Australia and later with dairy cattle when she returned home to Sweden.
Camilla recently returned to VikingGenetics after four years working in the poultry sector and has received a warm welcome back.
“VikingGenetics is a lovely place to work at. I’ve been welcomed back with arms wide open. When I left in 2019, it wasn’t because I didn’t like the job but because it was an opportunity for me to try something different,” she says.
Camilla decided to take a break from cattle breeding after a management opportunity in the poultry sector came up.
“I have such great respect for the work that poultry growers do. Every minute counts toward the final result,” she says.
“Working in the poultry business was a great experience. I had the opportunity to be both a grower and a production advisor for other growers. I can take much of what I learned there and use it in this new step of my career,” she adds.
Camilla realised she missed the passion for cattle breeding, and when the opportunity to come back as Product Manager showed up, she took it.
“Every single cow matters for a dairy farmer. As a dairy producer, you can directly impact your production with the right management and genetics,” she explains.
