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 sheep veterinary consultant Fiona Lovatt. A global expert in sheep medicine and the flock based approach.
Someone who is very passionate about the vet’s role in helping sheep farms and performance. She also is a clinical associate professor at the University of Nottingham.
She is also involved in the RUMA task force looking at the reduction of antibiotics across the UK agriculture. Someone who is a key opinion leader in all things flock medicine.
A great communicator and someone who continues to champion best practice on our sheep farms.
