All farmers in the Region are encouraged to and are very welcome to attend our  public events such as seminars, farm walks and open days across all enterprises during the year.   These events are advertised in local papers, radio and social media.

 As well as the main farm enterprises  improvement in water quality is one of the key strategies of  the Teagasc Tipperary Advisory Service and we have one dedicated advisor to the ASSAP programme to work with all farmers in the Region.   This is done in collaboration with industry stake holders  such as local Co-Operatives and LAWPRO.
