When the new AgriSearch sheep advisory committee met to examine how research projects already selected for support are progressing it was a virtual who’s who of the NI sheep sector!

The sheep advisory committee likewise took the opportunity to discuss further potential research projects of value to farmers and worthy of support by AgriSearch. Plans were also put in place for sheep farm walks this coming autumn and spring when scientists and farmers working together on research projects will give a results up date to lamb producers.

Further details of the new research projects and sheep farm walks will appear in forthcoming issues of this Ezine.
