It will not come as a surprise that Dairy-Tech, another leading farm tech industry event, has altered their format. Dairy-Tech this year will be held through a series of online events over two weeks from February 3 to February 17.
The Royal Association of British Dairy Farmers (RABDF) have taken the decision due to ongoing Covid-19 concerns and national restrictions. In previous month, a spokesperson for the RABDF said about this:
“We all wish we were meeting in person, but at the same time we are incredibly proud to bring you Dairy-Tech Online; a two-week programme of workshops, foot trimming demonstrations, webinars, new products and online conferences.”
Last year, Agri-EPI Centre teamed up with partners Glas Data and AgSenze to showcase technology at the event’s Innovation Hub. Visitors also had the opportunity to speak to representatives of the three respective organisations at the joint exhibition stand to learn more about new projects, trials and technologies supporting sustainable milk production. Our Head of Dairy, Duncan Forbes, gave a talk about the ground-breaking activities taking place at the Agri-EPI South West Dairy Development Centre in Somerset, such as the use of 5G connectivity for improved health and welfare, precision grazing trials and automated milking systems.
This year, Agri-EPI staff members will attend Dairy-Tech as a delegate. For tickets, the event programme and more information about Dairy-Tech, visit their website.
