AgriSearch will be attending this year’s NSA Sheep NI event on 1st July 2019 at Ballymena Livestock Mart.
The AgriSearch stand will feature research findings of relevance to Northern Ireland lamb producers. This will include “Lamb from Grass” which form part of GrassCheck and a case study on Roger and Hilary Bells sheep farm, one of our “Lamb from Grass” co-researcher farms. AgriSearch will also be showcasing the latest SCOPS recommendations on the use of anthelmintics and worm control.
SUPER-G a Europe-wide research project that aims to co-develop sustainable permanent grassland (PG) systems and policies with farmers, citizens, and policy makers; ensuring business viability, while supporting biodiversity and delivering several other Ecosystem Services will also be featured. Visitors will have a chance to participate in a short survey for the SUPER-G project.
Those calling at the stand will have an opportunity to engage the AgriSearch team, farmer co-researchers and AFBI scientists and give their views on future areas of research.
