Milk price meeting

MAXIMISING the price of milk, a conference for dairy producers, is to take place on Apr 24, at the National Agricultural Centre, Stoneleigh, Warks.

KT dairy project leader and conference organiser, Bridget Drew, believes UK dairy farmers will face the worst milk price in living memory this spring. This conference, sponsored by HSBC in association with the RASE, addresses what the market requires and how to maximise milk price by feeding cows to maximise market return.

Starting at 10.30am, it will feature sessions on: Producing what the customer wants; Feeding to maximise milk price on high forage diets; and Feeding to maximise milk price on high concentrate diets.
