Introducing the team in your area
We aim to provide our knowledge to help you achieve efficient
farming practice. By speaking with farmers and finding out what is
As a team we think it is important to know the needs of our dairy farmers so we can help them get the most from your levy. Impact groups and discussion groups are a great way we can do this.
What's coming up?
Having now visited all of the dairy farms in the region and established people's problems and preferences, I'm putting together tailored meetings for small groups within one hour's travelling distance. Recent topics have include running a 600-cow modern dairy business and feeding the high yielding cow at grass. Coming up we have an explanation of the roller coaster milk price plus an introduction to the DairyCo Mastitis Control Plan on farms in Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex.
DairyCo's role is to fill the gaps and offers a chance for levy payers and their staff to get something back for their levy and learn together in an independent, confidential environment where dairy farming is positive, profitable and fun.
So if you are interested in taking part in an Impact Group (a series of three meetings covering topics such as business or breeding) or forming a DairyCo Discussion Group, or you would like more information about this winter's meetings please get in touch".
