Meet the Miro Team.
Owner & General Manager
Hi I'm Frank Bellerby - animal nutritionist and owner of Miro Feeds Limited. I set up Miro Feeds in 2005 as I felt that there was a real need for an animal feed company that offered a personal service providing an animal nutrition service.
Our aim is to provide nutritionally optimum products that benefit not only the health of your animals but also your bank balance.
Hello! I became the second member of the Miro Feeds team in 2008, and am now fully responsible for the day-to-day office functions including invoicing, orders, payroll, accounts payable and marketing.
I travelled to this wonderful country from the UK in 2005, and now I live with my husband and two boys on a lifestyle block with calves, cattle and chooks in Te Mata (near Raglan)
I have worked in many different business operations since my graduation (BA Hons Business Admin), including recruitment, marketing and insurance, however the animal feed industry offers the most challenges and I love it!
I joined the Miro Team during the peak of the 2011 Calf Rearing Season. Prior I was successfully rearing my calves the "Miro Way" & called into the Miro Feeds Te Uku store to stock up on Miro Mix CMR and calf meal. I found Emily rushed off her feet and Frank had lost his voice! Once they discovered that I was multi-skilled in office administration aswell as calf rearing, I was hired on the spot!!
I grew up a typical farm kid on a sheep & beef farm in the Ruapehu area. After several admin roles & a bit of travel, I realised I really was "just a farmer" and have loved the past 10 years Dairy Farming and now calf rearing.
Chances are when you catch me on the phone or call into the store, I will already have been up early tending to my own stock. I am well aware of the day to day challenges we face in the agriculture industry.
When I'm not here at Miro, you will find me enjoying the Raglan playground we are so lucky to have on our doorstep.
