Moo! Cows, bull semen and biotechnology
One of several exceptional spokespeople from New Zealand that we worked with at BIO2006 is Dr Suzanne Bertrand, Innovation Manager (a great title) for Livestock Improvement (a great name). She was the outstanding speaker at the New Zealand Ag and Food Seminar (with a charming Quebecois accent and killer use of visuals in her slides), so I was on the lookout for interview opportunties for her.
As it turned out, Chuck Zimmerman (one of our first blog visitors) was having a hard time finding BIO2006 material for World Dairy Diary, an online blog-style trade publication.
WDD is a lively multimedia pub enriched with photos and audio, featuring short daily articles with such arresting headlines as:
"Camel Milk Production Faces Humps" and
"Great Lakes Manure Expo Encourages You to 'Keep it in the Root Zone'".
Chuck has published an audio interview of Suzanne that is informative, educational, entertaining and even sexy--listen carefully for the line about the Holy Grail of dairy cattle improvement!
