Dairy Conference 2020 – Scroll down to view presentations



The 2020 Irish Grassland Association Annual Dairy Conference, sponsored by Yara, took place on Wednesday 8th January 2020.  Staying in the south west of the country, the Charleville Park Hotel played host to this year’s conference. As usual, an excellent line-up of topics and speakers has been arranged to make this a must-go event on the dairy farming calendar.


At 8pm on the evening before the Dairy Conference (Tuesday 7th January), there was an exclusive opportunity for Irish Grassland Association members to meet at an evening gathering in advance of the Conference. Admission was free to all IGA members and a friend. The 2020 guest speakers were John Kelly Dairy Farmer, Ned English Potato and Cereal Grower and Pat O’Keeffe Pig / Dairy Farmer. They will be interviewed in a panel discussion with the theme: ‘Dairying – future products and markets’. This discussion will be facilitated by Matt Dempsey, former Irish Farmers’ Journal editor and IGA Lifetime Merit Award recipient.
