I’ve been lucky over the last number of years to have some great conversations. These have often inspired me around areas of animal health and beyond. So, I said, why not start having more of them and sharing some of these inspiring stories of people in agriculture.
I also want to challenge my thinking and who knows, even occasionally, the status quo.
So I’m giving #Aginspire conversations a go for a few months.
The aim is simple “To have conversations with interesting people doing inspiring things in agriculture”.
This week I catch up with veterinary consultant Martin Kavanagh.
With a deep understanding of farm systems and working with farms all over the world. Martin is someone who has been kind to me with his time and knowledge over the past number of years.
Someone with vast experience, he also employs a deep level of thinking on all matters of farm and herd performance. Have a listen to what he looks for when assessing the drivers of performance on farms.
