Introducing the team in your area
We arrange discussion groups on a variety of topics covering many aspects of dairy farming, from mastitis control to slurry storage. We are able to see what farming processes work, which do not and more importantly why the processes work.
As a team we organise regular events and meetings to demonstrate different approaches to farm management processes like grazing management to improve farming efficiency.
