After attending the 2018 “Communicating Your Science Workshop” at Chicheley Hall, Bedfordshire, Stephanie Smith was inspired to write an article for the Naked Scientists website: The Hunger Games: breeding the future dairy cow.

Steph is a research scientist at the SRUC, Edinburgh, where she studies the genetics behind dairy cow milk production.
