Conferences are a great way to learn something new, expand knowledge and network with likeminded individuals. Learnings can be brought back and shared on farm to encourage innovative practice and lead to improvements in GB dairy farming.

AHDB Dairy is offering a limited number of grants, ranging from £300 to £2,500, towards the costs of attending events, which include:

  • Positive Farmers Conference, 11 – 12 Jan 2017
  • Semex Dairy Conference, 15 – 17 Jan 20177
  • Western Dairy Conference, 28 Feb – 2 Mar 20177

Previously, successful applicants have attended Total Dairy, IDF and the Cattle Lameness Conference. As well as their own development, applicants have shared their experiences with other farmers at AHDB Dairy events.
