DairyCo Calls for Forward-thinking Farmers

17 April 2009

UK - DairyCo is calling for forward-thinking farmers to apply for a position on its new Research Advisory Forum, which is being created to help identify and address future challenges for the dairy industry.

The forum will be headed up by DairyCo board member and dairy farmer Kenny Campbell, and Brian Lindsay, head of research and development at DairyCo, and will drive and direct research and development to tackle industry challenges.

Mr Lindsay explains: “There are many dairy farmers running successful and innovative businesses who have concerns about issues that they see arising in the long-term; we want the Research Advisory Forum to bring these farmers together alongside leading dairy scientists and industry representatives to establish a dedicated plan of research and development.”

Kenny Campbell, who has been a dairy farmer for over 18 years sees the forum as an essential tool to support and develop a sustainable future for dairy farming: “We want this forum to lead the way for the future of the dairy industry in Great Britain.

"By working with farmers who are seeing now what sort of issues are on the horizon we can make sure we’re conducting the research and development that addresses these issues and finds practical solutions for all dairy farmers.”
