Entrepreneurial Ashley launches first equine faecal egg counting business in Northern Ireland

BSc (Hons) Equine Science graduate, Ashley Neely, found her niche in the equine market after graduating from Reaseheath by launching the first mobile equine faecal egg counting business in Northern Ireland.

Ashley’s company, EFEC Nutrition, offers clients on yard faecal egg counts which help diagnose the horses worm burden and advise on how to keep their horses healthy.

Part of running her business Ashley, 22, delivers talks and demonstrations to horse owners and riders on a range of topics including the science of parasitology and general equine nutrition. She’s also had the opportunity to represent EFEC Nutrition at various specialist equestrian shows and events across Northern Ireland, including CAFRE equine technology showcase event

Said Ashley: “Coming to Reaseheath helped me gain knowledge and practical stills to start out in the equine industry. Thanks to support of my lecturer Dawn Gale and her passion for parasitology, I found my gap in Northern Irish market”.

Dawn also runs her own parasitology business alongside lecturing at Reaseheath.

Having begun to build up a good reputation within the industry after only a few months in business, Ashley already has plans to expand!
