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 the inspiring Dr. Karina Pierce a well-known figure and key opinion leader in Irish Agriculture.

A Wicklow native and former Professor in dairy production at UCD. She has now moved to pastures new as a senior development advisor (dairy) with Enterprise Ireland.

Somebody with huge energy, passion, and knowledge it is always a pleasure to chat with Karina.

We discuss

Her route into studying agriculture

The new challenges for students around COVID

Look back at some of the lessons learned in her own career

We talk about her Nuffield research and much more
