We were joined in studio tonight by Charles Chavasse, veterinary adviser with Zoetis who spoke with Matt about the issues around preventive animal medicine at this  time of year and the challenges involved in the reduction in dependence of antibiotics.

Joe Lyng, Nuffield Scholar and ruminant manager with Glanbia, spoke with Matt around his research in the benefits of grass based dairy production from a marketing viewpoint, a current issue with Irish dairy production.
