Arrabawn Co-Op are hosting an Agri Information Open day on the 24th of June in Gurteen Agricultural College, from 11am to 2pm. The event is long awaited after a lengthy pause to all shows due various restrictions over the previous 2 years. The event has blossomed and grown since the last similar show in 2019.
The theme of the day is “Efficient, Sustainable, Knowledgeable Farming”. All exhibitors on the day will be showcasing their products and technologies which support this theme. We understand agriculture is an ever-improving sector and striving to meet industry demands. Our aim of the day is to create a space where information is freely available to all who attend. And take home some valuable lessons or create a link with some new businesses to benefit their enterprise.
This year there will be over 65 exhibitors at the event, with some demonstrations on the day also. All aspects of modern-day farming from machinery to seed plots, milk recording to breeding genetics, veterinary to diagnostic laboratories, energy and water heating to financial advice, soil heath to animal monitoring devices will be on display. No stone will be left unturned! The seed plots include some Multi Species Swards, Brassica’s and various grazing pastures. Get up close and see these new pastures up close.
Four very special guest speakers will be present on the day. First up Liam Woulfe, CEO Grassland Agro, second is Conor Mulvihill – Director, Dairy Industry Ireland, Declan Kelliher and Michael Fox from Ornua Ireland, Joe Healy – Chair and Non-executive director at Cultivate and Tom O’Dwyer Head of Sign Post Programme Teagasc. They will give their views on markets, inputs/outputs costs and more, followed by a Q+A session. The farming community will have the chance to ask questions and get some insightful answers into the future of Irish Farming. An opportunity not to be missed!
We are really encouraging all farmers to come along to what is promised to be a great day out. All are welcome to the event; it will be bigger and better than before!
