Field lab meetings:
Electrical weeding field lab. More info.
This field lab is trialling a tractor driven electrical weeder that moves at normal speeds in the field. This will be a meeting where growers will get to see the latest prototype version of the tractor and hear learnings from a 2nd year of investigation.
Book your place: 15th May, near Hereford, 1pm - 4.30pm. (Lunch included)
Reducing antibiotic use for mastitis. More info.
There are two meetings coming up for dairy farmers in the south and south west of England who would like to hear more about the opportunity to trial a new on-farm culture test (MastDecide) to determine how they treat cows for Mastitis. Funding is available to determine if on farm tests can be used by farmers as an effective tool to significantly reduce antibiotic usage without affecting animal welfare and mastitis outcome parameters.
Generally, field lab groups meet up a few times a year. If you'd like to go along to find out more about a specific field lab, you can contact the group co-ordinator by using the Find a Field Lab page to find contact details for the coordinator, or get in touch and we'll put you in contact.
