Janet Dwyer invited to present at EAAP Annual Meeting

Janet Dwyer has been invited to speak at the 67th Annual Meeting of the European Federation of Animal Science (EAAP).

The meeting will be held in The Waterfront Conference and Exhibition Centre in the heart of Belfast, on the banks of the River Lagan, from 29 August – 1 Sept 2016.

This is Europe’s largest animal science conference and will feature over 1000 presentations. The conference is a unique opportunity for industry and scientists to meet, exchange experiences and work together to implement new science for maximum impact.

The theme for the conference is Sustainable Food Production – Livestock’s Key Role and a plenary session will deliver keynote presentations in this area. The conference will include discussion on the role of grassland as an important global resource for farm livestock as well as the key issue of food safety.

Janet will be speaking at a session on ‘Succession Planning for European Livestock Farmers’. Her presentation will be based on ‘farming at the periphery of Europe – challenges and policy opportunities for livestock farms’, during which she will focus on marginal farming and the need for collaboration and innovation, drawing from CCRI’s recent work in a variety of UK and EU projects.
