Dairy Sheep & Goat Online Conference 2022 Promoting the DS&G Online Conference to 12th November 2022
Claire is a farm veterinary surgeon who mainly works within the dairy industry in the Northwest of England and Wales. She completed a postgraduate certificate in Conservation Medicine which consolidated her interest in the principles of ecosystem health on farms. She is the veterinary lead for the “Dung beetles for Farmers” group - an online resource for farmers, land owners and livestock managers which aims to improve the conservation status of dung beetle in the UK by providing pragmatic, evidence-based advice. As part of this she has a healthy interest in all things poop and biodiversity and can often be found waxing lyrical on the joys of a cow pat!
She is an advocate for nature friendly farming and sits on the steering group of the Welsh Nature Friendly Farming Network.
She was awarded a 2021 Nuffield Farming Scholarship studying the benefits of regenerative agriculture on animal health and welfare and is globetrotting in an effort to understand this better!
