Can Individual Animal Management in sheep be a way forward for our industry or is it more effort than its worth? I think there are many takes on this question and many ways in which it could be done, if at all? Throughout this year, I plan to investigate how we can get the best out of our sheep through measurement and objective selection.


As part of my Nuffield scholarship, I will travel to many countries looking at how farmers both within the sheep industry and in other industries are using technology, like RFID, to take measurements and make decisions that result in increased productivity on farm.

The variation in our sheep and lambs amazes me every year. The potential in them completely blows me away and it is this that excites me to finding better and more innovative ways of managing our sheep. This blog will include interesting sightings, discussions and ideas about sheep and agriculture in general and I hope you enjoy following on.

    • Hey Missie, you just press on the follow which should pop up if on a tablet or computer. It won’t pop up if you are on your phone. It just means you will get an email whenever I write a new blog. Let me know if it still doesn’t work. Plan on writing every few days to a week. Hope that helps!

  1. Hi Hannah,

    My name is Roxanne van der Hooft and I work for Talpa Productions. Talpa Productions is a Dutch television company.
    Right now we are also working on a new show called: ‘Weet ik veel’ which is a new big quiz in Holland, the show will be broadcasting on RTL4.

    The programme: ‘Weet Ik Veel’ Season 3, is a quiz, and is going to be broadcast via RTL Nederland on free and basic television once on prime time on RTL 4 with a maximum of 1 repeats non-prime time and two weeks ad-supported streaming on-demand from the first broadcast on RTL 4 on RTL its free streaming service RTL XL. This first broadcast is scheduled for Saturday the 18th of April 2015. We are going to make 6 episodes and broadcast it every week on a Saturday. One episode takes about 1,5 hour.
    Each clip we use will be max. 40 seconds length in this show, just to support one of the questions from our quiz.

    In ‘Weet ik veel’ we are showing several clips to support some of our questions.
    One clip we would like to use a little piece of the video(see the link below):

    From the original video:

    We would like to use max. 30 seconds of this clip in our show. Is there a possibility to use this clip?
    And is it possible to get the footage in high-res?

    We specifically want to use a little piece of this footage because our question is based on this.

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Kind regards,
    Roxanne van der Hooft
