The farmer funded research body, AgriSearch is inviting forward looking farmers to join its advisory committees and help shape the future of the sector. The successful candidates will be dairy, beef and/or sheep farmers with a track record of implementing best practice on their farms.

“There are many challenges and opportunities facing our Agri-Food sector and AgriSearch’s innovative work can play a central role in addressing these issues,” explains AgriSearch’s Chairman, John Henning. “We want to hear from farmers who are strong advocates of evidence-based farming and can help shape the strategic direction of our research and knowledge exchange programmes. This is a unique opportunity to benefit from insights into the whole agri-food chain with committee members being able to visit farms, factories, retail facilities and research centres. We want the committee members to play leading roles in actively shaping our research agenda.”
