Episode 34: Dr Kieran Meade: Cows, Animal Science and Engagement
Dr Kieran Meade, Associate Professor in the UCD School of Agriculture and Food Science and Senior Conway Fellow joins me this week. He chats to me about all things cows! From bovine immunology and fertility to how they are like elite athletes or even supermodels at times! We chat about his desire to link the 'passion of agriculture with the expertise in immunology' for a a One Health approach to science.
We also chat about vitamin D levels in calves, the impact of the annual TB test and his fascinating trip to Kenya during his PhD. Kieran also discusses being a 'Dub' in a agri-world, his childhood trips to Tipperary and why failure is just as important as success.
