Club Notes – Spring 2018
Our first meeting of the year was our Annual General meeting, which took place on Wednesday 17th January at 8:00 pm in the Bridge House Hotel, Tullamore, Co. Offaly. This was an opportunity for members to raise issues or make suggestions as to the direction of the club and its activities in general, and the attendance was very good.
Immediately after the AGM, members had the opportunity to listen to, what were, two very interesting presentations – Roger Barkely from Tintur Holsteins in Cappoquinn Estate, Co. Waterford gave us an insight into their system of dairy farming and the breeding goals of their pedigree Holstein herd. This was followed by a presentation from Eoin Lowry, IFJ Agribusiness Editor who gave us his views on what the next 12 – 18 months will look like in terms of dairy markets and milk prices.
Mary Conroy gave a round-up of YMA activity for the year and thanked Peter Ging for hosting the YMA Rally.
The meeting was very kindly sponsored by Agri Needs, Quinns and Specialist Nutrition. Once again, we are very grateful to all of our sponsors for their continued support. They were present on the night to discuss their wide range of dairy related products.
