Research results of real relevance to producers will be displayed and discussed on the AgriSearch stand at the Royal Ulster Winter Fair at the Eikon Complex, Balmoral Park Thurs, Dec, 14.

Research topics featured on the stand will include GrassCheck, colostrum quality, precision technologies for heifer rearing and the use of infrared cameras to assess health and welfare.

The GrassCheck feature will highlight how the GrassCheck pilot farmers have made the best use of grass during what has been a very challenging year.  Two of the GrassCheck dairy farmers will be on the stand to discuss their experiences of the project.

There will also be a feature highlighting 20 years of farmer funded dairy research and copies of AgriSearch’s 20th Anniversary Publication “Making a Difference for Generations” will also be available to take away.
