Germinal, in partnership with UCD Lyons Farm, invites you to a farm walk and discussion on Friday, 19th May 2023.
This event is a rescheduling of the farm visit section of Germinal’s recent Annual Technical Day, which was postponed due to inclement weather.
UCD’s Prof. Tommy Boland and Prof. Helen Sheridan will examine the role of multi-species swards in animal production, meat quality, farm profitability and carbon footprint, while enabling a lower N input which brings environmental and economic benefits. Prof. Karina Pierce will also provide an update on the economic and environmental sustainability of the grass based high-output spring-calving dairy system at Lyons Farm.
We will also welcome Prof. Paul Kenyon from the School of Agriculture and Environment, Massey University, New Zealand. Prof. Kenyon will give an update on the development and application of herb-clover systems for dairy, beef and sheep farms in New Zealand.
19 IASIS CPE points are available for those who attend this event.
