Joe Patton, Teagasc’s Head of Dairy Knowledge Transfer previews the upcoming Teagasc National Dairy Conferences that are taking place in Cork on December 6th and Mullingar on December 8th.

Joe gives a brief outline of each of the four sessions that will be delivered on the day from a market outline and future demands piece from Co-op representatives and an information piece on the value of high quality dairy products in human nutrition from the Food Safety Authority of Ireland.

The second session will look at chemical N strategies that accompany clover as well as the nutritive values that clover-based diets give livestock as well as discussing the journey towards clover incorporation on their farms with Michael Gowen and Sean O’Donnell.

The third session of the conference will deal with calf housing and welfare as well as beefing up the calf crop coming from the dairy herd with new insights from Alan Twomey as well as farmer experiences from Liam Long and Peter Robinson.

The final session will cover a broad range of topics from finances to SCC to methane mitigation to labour efficiency when milking and the factors that influence this.

Finally Joe reminds people to book in for December 6th or 8th to hear about the subjects in more detail and this can be done by going to the Teagasc website at:
