#37 – Twitter Wars, Sustainability and Hill Farming with Gareth Wyn Jones

This week I had the pleasure of talking to Mr. Gareth Wyn Jones a hill farmer, T.V personality and an advocate for agriculture from Wales. In this episode we talked about meat and dairy and the real affects farming have on the environment. The 27,000 acre commonage which Gareth farms on and has farmed on for a number of years!

We delved into the topic of animal rights activists, the shocking marketing ploys they have used in order to manipulate people who are less knowledgeable about food production and what we can do about it.

This podcast is sponsored by Eweknit Apparel and we are happy to announce that our online store is now open for business.

#36 – Calf Health, Blogging and Horrible Bosses with Alice the Calf Girl

If you’ve been a fan of The Agricast for awhile then this weeks guest needs no introduction as we’ve talked on the podcast a few times before. Alice Hodges is a 25 year old dairy farmer originally from England who now lives and works in Kildare calf rearing and relief milking on a number of farms.

We had a fantastic conversation about different topics such as her new blog which she launched a few weeks ago surrounding her work and her farm life which is very interesting! We also talked about her experience working on a farm and she gives great advice on how to build your reputation in the industry, what you should expect when working on a farm and any red flags to look out for when working for somebody. COVID has been the topic on everybodys mind for awhile so we also touched on the stress its causing people and how because of it Alice unfortunately wasn’t able to go home to her family as planned.
