Tommy the Vet on water quality - the sometimes forgotten nutrient

Kerry man Tommy Heffernan, also known as Tommy the Vet, is a veterinary consultant based in Wicklow and he joins Cathal Somers and Deirdre Glynn on the latest episode of the Environment Edge podcast to talk about water quality, the sometimes forgotten nutrient.

When it comes to water quality we often talk about the effect poor water quality has on our environment, however as farmers we rely hugely on plenty of clean water to look after our animals.

Tommy discusses the importance of clean water for animal performance, issues he has come across in relation to water quality and how to know if your animals have an issue.
