Teagasc at the National Ploughing Championships18 September 2018 20 September 2018
Venue Screggan, Tullamore, Co Offaly
The exceptionally dry weather means that fodder remains a key issue for many farmers. Our open air arena beside the Teagasc Marquee proved highly popular last year and we will use it again to address this crucial topic. Teagasc researchers, specialists, advisors and nutritionists will address real examples by interviewing farmers about their situations and how they optimise their feed and fodder strategy this autumn, winter and next spring. As well as viewing live interviews on our outdoor screen farmers will have the possibility to have one-to-one discussions about their individual fodder or financial issues with advisors at the event.
The Teagasc stand will not just be about fodder of course. It is a one-stop-shop for the full range of issues confronting farm families. So if you want to discuss education opportunities (Teagasc has several exciting new initiatives and partnerships in the pipeline); farm succession (we will have experts present); forestry; environment related issues; diversification; food; Health and Safety; horticulture; farm management as well as the main stream enterprises drystock, dairy or tillage there will be free advice available.
You will have no trouble finding us as we are very close to the NPA Headquarters. We look forward to meeting you at the Teagasc stand at Ploughing2018.
