San Jolly is the director of Productive Nutrition; an independent livestock consulting business which she commenced in 1999. Since that time the company has grown to employ four consultants and two support staff. Her company has been involved in producer and industry projects, and has become a reliable, independent source of advice for farmers and agribusiness within Australia and internationally.

San is passionate about improving production sustainably and using best practice methods that are practical, achievable and cost efficient.

With many years' experience gained from working with producers and industry colleagues, managing a property together with her continuing interests in research, San and her team have become sought after as livestock consultants as well as presenters for key note addresses and workshops. San's presentations are recognised for their engaging, practical and unambiguous style.
