Ep. 23: Dr. Guy Jodarski-Organic (Valley) Vet
You may wonder why this would be under the 'nutrition' label when we are talking to a veterinarian but it will become very obvious as you get into the episode. We had the privilege of talking to Dr. Guy Jodarski of Organic Valley. We cover so much information about nutrition in this episode. We talk organic vs. conventional, grass fed vs. not, all the way down to soil quality.
If you have ever thought about organic but couldn't make up your mind for multiple reasons we suggest you check this one out because the information is great and backed by science. We very much enjoyed the the with Dr. Guy and hope you enjoy the episode.
