DairyCo is calling for “forward-thinking” dairy farmers to apply for a position on its new Research Advisory Forum.

The forum was set up to help identify and find practical solutions to, the future challenges for the industry and will be headed by DairyCo board member Kenny Campbell and head of R&D Brian Lindsay.

“There are many dairy farmers running successful and innovative businesses who have concerns about issues that they see arising in the long-term,” Mr Lindsay says. “We want the Research Advisory Forum to bring these farmers together alongside leading dairy scientists and industry representatives to establish a dedicated plan of research and development.”

Interested dairy farmers should contact Brian Lindsay on 01285 646500. All applications should be received by 20 May 2009.
