‘Optimising efficiency during a challenging time’ is the title of this year’s South Wales Dairy Conference, organised by ForFarmers, HSBC and CARA.

The event, which takes place on Tuesday 9 February at the Nant-Y-Ffinn Hotel, Llandissilio, Clynderwen, Pembrokeshire, SA66 7SU, will follow the theme of developing tools to provide maximum efficiency across your dairy farm business.

After an introduction and scene setting from Euryn Jones from HSBC, Iwan Price from CARA will talk about the practicalities and benefits of benchmarking a modern dairy business. Dr Alex Bach, Research Professor and Director of the Department of Ruminant Production at IRTA in Catalonia will then speak about managing and feeding dairy herds to maximise efficiency.

After lunch, Cheshire dairy farmer and ‘Cream Awards 2015 Forage Manager of the Year’ winner, Adrian Smith, will talk about achieving the maximum efficiency and milk from forage. Philip Halhead, dairy farmer and Director of Norbreck Genetics Ltd, will conclude the conference speaking about managing people effectively and efficiently.
