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 a good friend and Aussie farmer James Stacey.
I got to travel the world with James while completing our Nuffield Farming Scholarship. James has a big interest in farming, land, and water management in the periurban area.
He is also someone with a keen eye for trends in global agriculture and global politics. With a large social media following, he is not afraid of having an opinion. He also reflects on lessons learned himself in life and during his Nuffield scholarship.
