On day one, Tuesday 20th October, join Tomás Ryan, farm manager at Teagasc Moorepark Pig Research Facility, as he takes us on a tour of the unit. Tomás will walk us through the 200 sow unit, from the breeding building to the finisher building stopping along the way to speak about some of the farm practices at Moorepark and highlighting facilities found in the unit which aid both production and research.

The live panel for this event will be hosted by Emer McCrum, Teagasc Pig Development Department Specialist Advisor. This event will feature a live discussion panel, who will host questions and answers sessions where you can submit your questions to be answered live during the event.
