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.

This week I talk with farm animal veterinarian and herd health specialist Catherine McAloon. Catherine is a member of the herd health team in UCD vet school and a European speciailist in bovine health management.

I have got so much from Catherine as an advisor over the last decade.

We discuss  

  • Her love of cows and farming
  • We talk about summer scour syndrome and its potential causes
  • We also talk about mycoplamsa and coughing cows syndrome
  • We touch on some of the big animal health challenges ahead
