The conference organised by the Ulster Farmers’ Union, CAFRE, AFBI, LMCNI, and NBA will have a number of speakers from across the industry. Speakers will present an overview of the causes of cattle deaths and how health planning can reduce those loses. There will be representatives discussing realistic improvements in farm buildings to actively improve animal health. Delegates will also hear from specialist farmers from across the UK on the unique systems and processes in place on their own farms. Finally, Conall Donnelly of NIMEA will look at the current thinking on the implications of Brexit for Northern Ireland beef industry. This will be a beneficial conference for anyone involved in the beef industry.
