Lauren Beukes

Large animal technician

I grew up in Whakatāne and moved to Christchurch where I began my journey into the dairy industry. After farming for a couple of years I studied in 2020 to become a large animal technician while also working part time farming, doing night shift at a horse stud, being an AI tech assist and working as a casual technician at a vet clinic. After completing my qualification I went on to work for Lincoln University at one of their research and development farms while also completing my qualification to become an AI technician.  After 4 years of farming in the South Island I wanted to move back up north and did so in May when I started working at Te Puke Vets.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my two dogs, going to the beach or the lake and going on bush walks.
