TotalDairy Seminar 2019 Agenda

TotalDairy Seminar 2019 will take place on 19th and 20th June at the Crowne Plaza, Stratford-Upon-Avon.

Our theme for 2019 will be "2020 Dairying – Challenges and Opportunities". As we move towards the next decade, the challenges facing the dairy industry are changing and new opportunities arise. We hope to provide an insight into some of the future challenges and potential solutions across a wide range of areas relating to dairy herd management. These include labour issues, environmental concerns, public perception of the dairy industry, health challenges and many more.

This year we have colour coded the agenda to make it easier for you to identify the technical level of the session. The green sessions are farmer focussed whereas the blue sessions are advanced technical sessions (where basic knowledge of the subject will be required).

Please note that you will be booked onto the lectures, if you would like to attend any workshops please book these in advanced via the registration website. Places are limited and on a first come first choice basis.
