At this year’s Dairy-Tech, new products, innovation and ground-breaking technology will once again be on show alongside a programme of seminars in the ‘hub’ areas.

Speakers will be discussing the key issues facing dairy farmers and profiling what is on the horizon through the dairy and innovation hubs.

 

The issue of emissions will be discussed in the Dairy Hub, with dairy farmers Robert Craig, Cumbria, and Dave Craven, Grosvenor Farms, Cheshire, going head-to-head in a low versus high input systems session discussing the carbon footprint of their farms.

 

Emissions

 

Slots in the Innovation Hub will cover the positive effects of satellite intelligence, biological solutions for reducing emissions and emerging agri-tech with an exclusive app store section – identifying the latest apps farms need to download.
