Quick trip to Reading last week to record an interview with Kate Johnson. Kate is a qualified vet and a researcher in dairy science (just about to complete her PhD) and with the support of the Royal Veterinary College is advising us on the science of CowGirl Parlour. So, as I’ve been mulling over the long relationship between cows, milk and people, Kate has been on hand to explain and comment on the biology of lactation, fertility and the contemporary search for the high-yield cow from a scientific perspective.
Kate’s daughter Evelyn has been in on the project from the start and now at 12 weeks old she was keen to add her own voice to the discussion… You’ll be able to hear from Kate (and possibly Evelyn!) as part of the caravan sound installation in July.
