On this week’s show we focus on dairy breeding. We hear from Morgan O’Sullivan, PhD researcher from Teagasc, who explains the differences he has observed between dairy cows with elite and average EBI.  Morgan talks through the differences in milk production, fertility and longevity of elite and average dairy cows, and the consequences for profitability.
