Teagasc Outlook 2020 Conference26 November 2019 26 November 2019
Venue Ashtown Conference Centre, Teagasc Ashtown, Dublin 15. Eircode: D15 DY05
Following the challenges of 2018, the agri-food industry has experienced another challenging year in 2019. While weather conditions through spring and summer were quite good, autumn set in very early in some parts, with grazing curtailed, harvest completion delayed and planting of the 2020 crop deferred.
With the notable exception of pigs, output price developments in 2019 have been negative. On the inputs side, lower levels of feed use in grassland systems have been offset by higher feed and fertiliser prices.
In 2019 dairy has had a positive income rebound and the pig sector has benefitted from lower global production. However, in other sectors there have been more mixed incomes developments in 2019.
Turning to 2020, Brexit is a key consideration. This year’s conference will include the short term outlook for the major farm sectors, and will consider the implications of an orderly or disorderly Brexit.
Who Should Attend?
This event will be of interest to farm representative organisations, food businesses and representative bodies, financial institutions, academics, policy makers and farmers.
