Sheep conference date set for November

Wednesday, 11 October, 2017

The Ulster Farmers’ Union, CAFRE, LMC, AFBI and NSA have confirmed arrangements for their ‘Efficient Lamb Production’ conference.  This will take place on Wednesday 29th November at Greenmount from 10am to 4pm.

Lamb production makes a significant contribution to the agri-food industry and our rural environment.  To ensure that the sector has a viable future, consideration must be given to all elements of current production systems. The objectives of the conference are to highlight what the industry currently does well, but also to identify potential areas for improvement.

Progress in lamb production is the focus of the conference, with speakers from both practical farming and research backgrounds.  Speakers and those attending will share their knowledge of how best to deliver a 'progressive lamb production' model.  The conference can be used as a ‘qualifier meeting’ for those involved in sheep business development groups (BDGs).

The conference is open to all with an interest in sheep production. The fee is £20 and includes refreshments and lunch. Bookings are encouraged online at or if you need assistance please contact Angela in the UFU head office on 02890 370 222. Those involved in sheep BDGs should have their group number available when booking.
