Trish Rankin on doing better with farm rubbish 

In this month’s episode, Bryan Gibson talks to Trish Rankin.  

In 2019 Trish was Dairy Woman of the year and completed the Kellogg Rural Leadership Programme in the same year. For her research report she looked at on-farm rubbish and the ‘take, make, dispose’ economy that creates it.  

Trish discusses responsibly tackling the rubbish a farm can generate and some strategies that improve on the past’s ‘throw it in a hole’ thinking. Trish wants us all to do better with rubbish.
