Revisiting three farms that hosted the Event from 2014 to 2016, video clips from the farms airing on Twitter and Facebook from Monday to Wednesday, July 20th – 22nd will look back at where the host farmers were at the time they hosted the tour, where they are now and where they see themselves going in the future. Then on Thursday 23rd July all three hosts will join the Irish Grassland team and sponsors AIB for an online meeting to answer your questions about the direction that their farms have gone and about their plans for the future. Commenting at the launch of this year’s Summer Tour, Tadhg Buckley, Head of Agriculture, AIB said, ‘We are delighted to continue our support of the Irish Grassland Association Dairy Summer Tour. The approach taken by the Association this year has been necessary in response to the global pandemic and the cancellation of large scale events. This year’s event will allow us catch up with some of the previous tour hosts and see how things have changed since they hosted the Summer Tour, in terms of development, changes in performance and future strategy. The live webinar on Thursday evening will also offer the opportunity to ask our hosts any questions you may have. We at AIB are looking forward to this distinctly different 2020 Dairy Summer Tour just the same as previous tours’.
