The Irish Grassland Association's (IGA) annual dairy conference will take place in two venues this year.
On Tuesday, January 11, a half-day conference takes place at the Ardboyne Hotel, Navan, while the following day the full-day conference takes place at the Moran's Silver Springs Hotel, Glanmire, Cork.
The conference theme is entitled 'Planning for Post Quotas' and themes that will be carried over the two days include:
(i) Planning and managing spring grazing: How to increase grass utilisation at farm level;
(ii) Keeping valuable heifer calves alive, key pointers from farmers and research;
(iii) Managing super-levy risk, including an in-depth financial analysis of the various options open to farmers.
Once again the conference is kindly sponsored by Pfizer Animal Health.
For IGA members, tickets are €30 for the Navan conference and €50 for the Cork conference.
