Once a Day Milking Conference

Event Time 1pm
Venue Horse and Jockey Hotel, County Tipperary

Once a Day Milking is sometimes considered as an option on farms where labour is in short supply, where farm layout means long walks for cows to and from the parlour or simply because reducing the number of milkings is attractive from a lifestyle perspective. 

This event is aimed at dairy farmers and advisors interested in learning more about the Once a Day Milking option.
