The Lakeland Dairies / Teagasc Joint Development Programme is providing a Spring Management Series of advice, tips and information to help milk producers get the best from their dairy enterprises over the spring period and onwards. Each week, over twelve weeks, updates will be provided in a newsletter format across three main themes:
- Labour Efficiency & Spring Workload
- Animal Health & Milk Quality
- Spring Grassland Management
Each of the above themes is colour coded for easy reference. As they are published, all editions are available on the Lakeland Dairies website at: Lakeland.ie/Spring.
They’re in ‘pdf’ format so they can be viewed online and easily downloaded to keep on file or print out.
The Lakeland Dairies / Teagasc Joint Development Programme is aimed at maximising efficiency and profitability for dairy farmers in a sustainable manner for the future. The programme uses the findings of locally and regionally based research that is directly relevant to the needs of Lakeland Dairies milk suppliers.
Welcoming the initiative, Chairman Alo Duffy said,
Dairy farmers are entering a hugely busy period with calving and the run-in to peak milk production so this new Spring Management Series is very timely and relevant and I’m looking forward to reading each edition. Our mission is to promote the sustainability and wellbeing of our dairy farming families and rural communities and sharing knowledge and information is key to that task. We’re grateful to farmers who have shared their insights with us and to our Joint Programme advisors, member relations and agribusiness teams for co-ordinating this initiative.
Lakeland Dairies / Teagasc Joint Development Programme advisors are available by phone to discuss all farm related matters.
