Livestock in low-input systems conference

9 June 2016

Thursday 9 June 2016 from 10:30 to 15:30 (BST) at Howside Organic Farm, Cumbria.

The LILIS (Livestock In Low Input Systems) conference will look at the successes and challenges of upland livestock production in organic, upland and similar low-input systems. Topics under discussion will be the use of appropriate breeds, marketing and branding, and a back-to-basics approach to the animal and its role in the farming system. The conference will be held in farm buildings and your ticket will include a long lunch with plenty of time to chat. Conference delegates will also have the opportunity to join farm tours to look at challenges and solutions to upland farming, such as drainage, clover production and rush control.
