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 take a look beyond the farm gate with Barbara Bray MBE. Barbara is a nutritionist and food, safety consultant. She is also a Nuffield scholar and is passionate about food and a fairer society.
Check out her ted talk on “Diet, diversity and the future of food”
Her path into agriculture and food production
How personal experiences shaped her attitude towards diet and the science of human nutrition
How socioeconomic issues are such a big factor in food choices
Her role as a director in the Oxford farming conference
What would a fairer food future and society look like
