This week we change tracks a little and catch up with Dr Richard Shephard of Herd Health, a specialist animal health company which Richard founded in 1998 to address multi-disciplinary problems of animal and human health and animal production.Richards started as a clinical dairy veterinarian, who then went on to do post-grad training in epidemiology, whilst also working as a farm management consultant. This career path made him step back and view the dairy farm very, very differently. This is one of those "not to be missed" episodes of Head Shepherd where the lifetime of insights provided by Richard are truly invaluable. Mark and Richard discuss industry indices, and how they're all well and good for regional populations, but how knowing your farm and your flock are far more essential to boost profit. They also cover the outlook in the future for breeding "low input" animals, and what that could mean for the animal as a whole.
