There’s something for everyone on the program for this year’s Dairy Research Foundation Symposium which covers the latest developments in feed systems, young innovators, virtual fencing, biological farming and much more.
Foundation Director, Professor Yani Garcia, said this year’s Symposium will be held at Bega with the popular farm day visiting the Kimber family’s property, hosted by Todd Whyman. The 1200-cow herd is fed a PMR on an 800-cow feed pad, utilising fodder grown at home under a biological system plus purchased concentrate.
The farm day will also include the popular Emerging Scientists’ program where young researchers present their work in an interactive session, with the audience voting for the coveted Emerging Scientist Award.
There’s also a Women in Dairy Breakfast with guest speaker, Jennie Keioskie from the Rural Adversity Mental Health Program.
As always, the Symposium includes an exciting line-up of international and local guest speakers. Here are a few session highlights:
- Dairy feedbase in the future environment, David Chapman, Dairy NZ.
- Young dairy farmers innovation panel, Ashleigh Road, Andrew D’Arcy, Will Russell.
- Quality milking for quality milk, Edwin Kreykes, GPS Dairy Consulting, USA.
