Description

The Important Decisions - Why you should attend?

In what is possibly the most challenging time for British and Irish dairy farming in decades, the Pasture to Profit conference 2018 will focus on how to make the important decisions when faced with uncertain times. We have brought together a group of experts from around the world to help you manage and respond more effectively to risks in order to strengthen your farming business.

This year’s keynote address is from Professor Nicola Shadbolt, an expert in farm and agribusiness management at Massey University in New Zealand. She will discuss strategies to address risk proactively. Joining the conference by video-link, Dr John Roche, formerly a leading member of the research council at Dairy NZ is set to share his views and insight into production system research.

We have moved our Conference Networking Dinner to the evening before conference, Monday 15th at 7pm. If you would like to attend there is an option to purchase a ticket.

This is the one event in 2018 you cannot afford to miss.

Join and network with an expected 150 farmers from dairy farms and industry across the UK and Ireland.
