Teagasc National Dairy Conference28 November 2017 28 November 2017
Venue Lyrath Hotel, Kilkenny
The opportunity to increase farm profitability through growing milk production far outweighs the challenges faced by dairy farmers and the dairy industry. However, the opportunity will only be realised through the adoption of technologies and key management practices critical to sustainable milk production. This will become increasingly important as the scale of Irish dairy farms increases. This conference will focus on two key areas – grassland and people management. In addition some of the more recent results from the comprehensive dairy research programme at Teagasc will be explored.
