Dairy farmers are encouraged to attend the upcoming joint New Zealand and Ireland Pasture Summit forum, which will address whether pasture is still the way forward.

The forum is held across two days this week, with sessions on Wednesday July 7, and Thursday, July 8. These sessions will be live linked to the Irish venue, to enable international conversation and presentations.

Farmers are able to attend the event in person at Claudelands Event Centre, Hamilton, or farmers nationwide can tune in online to the discussion. Pasture Summit chairman Colin Armer says the forum's theme 'Pasture Fed Dairy & Water Quality - is pasture still the way forward?' promises to be exciting, with interesting discussions for farmers.
