On behalf of Teagasc Advisory I would like to welcome you to the Roscommon/Longford Regional Unit web site. This site gives you full up to date information on our Regional Unit including our staff, our Advisory Programmes and Services, and our Advisory and Educational public events and courses. It also has links to other sites within Teagasc.
Through our four major programmes: Business and Technology; Environment and Good Farm Practice; Rural Development; and Adult Education and Training, we provide a comprehensive range of services. In that range, we believe there is something to enhance every farmer’s operation, regardless of enterprise, scale, age or gender. Our Business , Technology , and Environment Programmes provides valuable advice and assistance on the Technical, Financial and Environmental management of farms through farm visits, office consultations, farm walks, discussion groups, Today’s Farm magazine, seminars, conferences and a range of other events. TResearch is Teagasc’s research and innovation magazine. The Summer 2009 issue of TResearch features a special section on ‘Challenges and Opportunities for the Dairy Industry'.
We have streamlined the production and distribution of our technical newsletters which are sent to all our clients monthly. These cover dairy, beef, sheep and tillage every month, with additional newsletters covering areas such as forestry, farm management, rural development and the environment, periodically. The newsletters are written by our specialists to provide you with expert advice, taking account of the up-to-date conditions and latest events.
Another development is the Teagasc/Farmers Journal "BETTER" farm programme, based on the application of up-to-date practical research on farms. I believe that over time this will further enhance our transfer of technical, business and environmental knowledge to assist in farm development.
Our Rural Development Programme provides comprehensive advice and assistance on all aspects of on and off farm alternative enterprise development and small business development. Through our Adult Training Programme courses ranging from the Advanced Certificate in Agriculture (ACA) to REPS Courses, Internet Courses, Farm Safety, Financial and short Technical courses are provided to all Adult farmers. Within all Advisory Programmes we provide comprehensive assistance on all Department of Agriculture Schemes and Services.
For a full list of all the Services which Teagasc Advisory provide please see this site or contact us for our Advisory Services brochure.
