The 2020 Irish Grassland Association Annual Dairy Conference, sponsored by Yara, takes place on Wednesday 8th January 2020.

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 is an exclusive opportunity for Irish Grassland Association members to meet at an evening gathering in advance of the Conference. Admission is free to all IGA members and a friend. The 2020 guest speakers are 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.
