I always love learning about what everybody is up to and this job has taken Claire far and wide. Listen in…

    Very interesting and as you say in your interview good to know some governments are on the case and actively looking into both treatment and prevention of these animal transmitted diseases. Must be very grounding for Claire to return to the family farm, where her inspiration was sparked, and be able to see how agriculture policy affects the individual farmer. Good on yer Claire.

      Yes and I could see and experience Claire’s inspiration! She is a grounded farming girl at heart. I enjoyed learning about her new style of veterinary work. Our skills are very transferrable and valued in other sectors.
