Future Proofing Irish Dairying goes live on 6 January

The IGA dairy conference entitled ‘Future proofing Irish dairying’ will be broadcast at 10am on Wednesday 6 January. The 90-minute conference will be delivered online meaning it can be enjoyed from the comfort of your own home or office. It consists of three short and punchy presentations, each followed by a questions and answer session chaired by IGA Council member and dairy farmer Laurence Sexton.

Sponsored by Yara, the conference aims to give Irish dairy farmers an insight into the future and help prepare for the 2021 season. Dairygold CEO Jim Wolfe will open proceedings by looking at our milk markets and discuss current and future opportunities for Irelands dairy sector.

Continuing the theme of looking into the future, Teagasc grassland research officer, Dr Deirdre Hennessy will examine how Irish farmers can continue to grow current levels of grass production using less chemical nitrogen. The third and final speaker is dairy farmer Tom O’Connell from Inniscarra Co. Cork and he will illustrate how he sets his farm up for springtime. Tom will share some of his labour-saving tips and tricks that saves time and streamlines his farm.
