I am a farm animal vet by trade, and work in mainly dairy practice in and around the Northwest . An unusual career choice, growing up in urban Liverpool, but as I got older I became more interested in where and how my food was produced and the impacts of food production.
Do regenerative agriculture principles improve the health and welfare of livestock?
McDonald’s UK & Ireland
After completing a postgraduate certificate in Conservation Medicine, I have become fascinated by regenerative agriculture and the benefits these farming principles bring in terms of increasing biodiversity, enhancing ecosystems and improving soils but have struggled to find information about the actual benefits to livestock in terms of health and welfare. I hope my study, will be able to answer some of these questions.
