    Cattlecast - Episode 29

    Kat Hart talks to David Black, Tom Warboys, Megan Williamson, and Lisa Morgans about the new Vet Sustain/Vet Salus course that is helping our profession become sustainability leaders in UK agriculture. The conversation explores how improving animal health and welfare – the day-to-day activities we’ve all been doing as farm vets for our entire careers – these are all sustainability endeavours. And we can reframe the conversations we have with clients to include how health, welfare and productivity are all entwined in their carbon footprint.

    Ele Brown, head of the TB policy team at Defra, outlines the ongoing impact of the government’s bTB eradication strategy – where there have been improvements and the status of the worst hit Edge Areas. She shows appreciation for the work of the private farm vet and talks to BCVA’s Kat Hart – a cattle vet and farmer – about the role of BCG vaccination as the cull strategy starts to wind down.

    Lisa Morgans, is Head of Livestock at Innovation for Agriculture, an independent knowledge exchange charity, based in the UK. She talks to Kat Hart about moving from mixed to farm practice because of the unique vet-farmer relationships, and how that resulted in a PhD that has in turn inspired a career to help agricultural researchers, businesses, landowners, and farmers to develop the knowledge and technologies that will make modern farming more sustainable, resilient, and productive. They explore the role of benchmarking, discussion and action groups, client clubs, using facilitators, multi-actor farm health teams and sharing knowledge through networks.

    CattleCast - Episode 24

    What are the challenges for today’s farm vet and how do we nurture positive relationships with our colleagues and clients? Former BVA President, James Russell, talks to Kat Hart about how graduating from the RVC in 2002, having been a part of the student cohort called on to help with the challenges of Foot and Mouth, informed his understanding of the relationship between vets and farmers. Having participated in the development of the BCVA’s TB position whilst on Board, he applauds the association for its developing approach to the key issues of the day, such as sustainability and wellbeing. James tells us about being BVA President during a pandemic, liaising with the divisions, the incoming Animal Health and Welfare Pathway, legislative reform, recruitment, and diversity in our profession. He also champions the work of VetLife – did you know there is a regular cohort of 100 people waiting to support our profession via their phoneline?
