The Irish Grassland Association will host its annual beef conference in the Headfort Arms Hotel, Kells, Co Meath, on Wednesday 21 June.

The conference will offer farmers the opportunity to hear from experts in the industry, with presentations and speakers from Teagasc, the ICBF and the Irish Farmers Journal taking place. The event, which is broken up into three sessions, will discuss issues in agriculture presently such as Brexit, the future opportunities and challenges that lay ahead in the beef industry, as well as driving farm profitability and improving farm efficiency on beef farms.

Joe Burke, beef and livestock sector manager with Bord Bia, and Sam Chesney, a suckler farmer and a member of the beef and sheep committee in the Ulster Farmers Union, will also address attendees.

The conference will be followed by a farm walk in Tom Halpin’s farm just outside Kells, Co Meath, which commences at 2.20pm.
