At 5 foot 3 and petite in size, you wouldn’t expect that Lisa O’Kelly is well able to get a cow into a cattle crush, but this veterinary nurse does just that, multiple times a week. “Sometimes I get a few raised eyebrows from farmers but I am well able,” she laughs.

She certainly is, as Lisa travels across the farms of north Cork where some visits with the vet could see three cows needing to be TB tested while another farm visit could see 300 cows line up.
