Following on from the success of July’s DairyCo Research Day, where nearly 100 people from across the dairy industry attended, DairyCo will be holding its next Research Day on 21 October at Bankhead Farm, Broxton, Chester, by kind permission of Mr and Mrs Alistair Cliff. 

Ray Keatinge, head of DairyCo research and development (R&D) said: “A continuous flow of R&D is crucial to increase the efficiency and overall competitiveness of the dairy industry. This is why DairyCo has been investing in R&D, including establishing two long-term Research Partnerships – one on Soils Forage and Grassland, and the other on Health Welfare and Nutrition. Within these consortia, DairyCo is now working with most of the leading UK universities and institutes involved in applied dairy research.” 

This is an open event where you are invited to come along and find out more about DairyCo’s research activity.

Topics being covered on the day, which runs from 10:30 until 14:30 include: 

  • Lucerne
  • Outwintering replacement heifers
  • Genetics
  • Lameness
  • Johne's disease
  • Calf management.
