Innovations in Dairying

Event Date: 8th March 2022, 10:00am - 3:30pm

Event Location: Paddy O'Keeffe Innovation Centre, Teagasc, Moorepark

The Agricultural Science Association is delighted to invite members to Teagasc’s research facility at Moorepark. The theme of the event is ‘Innovations in Dairying’ and our aim is to update our agri-professional members on recent developments in dairy research and technology.

The morning indoor session will feature presentations on carbon efficient farming and innovations in genetics, pasture imaging and the use of sensors in dairying.

After a light complimentary lunch, speakers at the outdoor afternoon session will update members on methane emission and carbon sequestration research and the latest from the SignPost Farm programme. The Association appreciates the sponsorship provided by Bank of Ireland to run the event.
