Drew Conroy
Andrew "Drew" Conroy has trained and worked oxen since the age of thirteen. As a junior in college he wrote his first book, The Oxen Handbook. Drew and his oxen regularly compete at New England fairs and field days. They have been featured in numerous magazine articles, and appeared in two films, The Crucible and In Search of the Oregon Trail. Drew is passionate about sharing his expertise and ideas on training oxen.

Drew is a frequent guest instructor at Tillers International and his advice is frequently sought by 4-H groups, museums, hobby ox trainers, and international audiences. His recent adventures with oxen have taken him to Africa four times, where his Ph.D. degree has led him to work with the Masai of Tanzania collecting data on their adoption of oxen technology. Drew teaches Dairy Science at the Thompson School of Applied Science, University of New Hampshire, Durham. He is a prolific writer on the subject of oxen, and is a regular contributor to Rural Heritage magazine. Drew raises cattle and trains oxen at Oxwood Farm in Berwick, Maine, where he lives with his wife, Janet, and son, Ross.
