“I write a piece every fortnight for the Australian Financial Review – indeed, I’ve been doing this since I was elected, and before I took up my place in the Senate. I also write regularly for The Australian, The Sydney Morning Herald, and The Guardian.

However, I’ve been writing in the rural, technical, and trade press – mainly on agribusiness and veterinary issues – for 20 years. Rather than publish everything I’ve ever written, what follows is a selection.

However –  for those who’ve been following David the vet for years – if there’s an historical piece you really want to see in this archive, please let me know”
