The Bovine: Calfsitting, bullfighting and precision ranching

The Bovine is a podcast that shares the latest industry news to the comfort of your chore tractor, on your walks through the heifer pens, or to your favourite arm chair.

The Bovine

After seeing overwhelming support for our January launch of The Bovine, we have now published our second episode of the season! Watch for them at the start of every month on your favourite podcast app (or check ABP Daily to easily find the audio to stream or download).

To start the show, host Debra Murphy gives a quick shout-out to ABP Daily and outlines some of our plans for the podcast. Then:

  • Do cows babysit? Animal welfare and behaviour specialist Dr. Joe Stookey joins us to answer calving questions you’ve wondered but never knew who to ask.
  • What does bull fighting offer a political career? Our very own Vice Chair, Jason Hale, talks about his careers in bull fighting and politics, and joining Alberta Beef Producers.
  • You’ve probably dreamed of virtual fencing, and might already use video cameras to keep an eye on aspects of your operation. But what other technologies are coming down the pipeline? Dr. Diego Moya Fernandez, Assistant Professor at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine joins the show.

If you have an idea for a future show, have a short audio clip you’d like us to share (see below), or a question we could tackle, get in touch through social media, or email.

Want to let us know where you’re listening, or what you’re up to? Email a voicenote along the lines of “Hi, I’m ____, waiting for the TMR to mix, and you’re listening to The Bovine.” You can also send in a question this way. But beware — you might just hear yourself on The Bovine with ABP.
