Katie Jones

Katie started working at Farmers Guardian in 2006 after studying for an English degree at the University of Leicester and a Masters in newspaper journalism at the University of Central Lancashire.

She began her career at FG as a trainee reporter before progressing to Head of Livestock Sales, and then Head of Livestock, a role she has held since 2011.

In addition to this, Katie is also Editor of FG’s sister title, Dairy Farmer.

Katie grew up on a dairy and beef farm in Cheshire, and now lives near the Cheshire/Welsh border on a 300-cow dairy farm run by her husband and family.

When she is not being roped into helping on the farm or running around after her two young children, Katie likes to run around on a netball court for her local team, and also enjoys walking the family’s two working Cocker Spaniels.
