Maeve is a 2015 Scholar, and deferred her GFP and other travel for a year, and completed her Nuffield programme with the 2016 scholars.
Maeve attained a BSc in Land Management Agriculture from Waterford Institute of Technology in 2012. She previously spent 18 months working on a 1,300 cow dairy farm in New Zealand. Her experience in New Zealand gave rise to the genesis of her solution, the ‘Inspect 4 turn over crate’.
It is as a result of her experiences to date that Maeve decided on her Nuffield topic ‘To Investigate Lameness in Dairy Cows’.
