130 farmers to travel over 2,500km to see seven dairy farms

A group of 130 dairy farmers from seven countries across European, along with Alltech team members are set to travel to Netherlands, France and Ireland over the course of four days, this week.

The group have gathered from all across Europe, including delegates from France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Ireland and Switzerland.

The Alltech Euro Tour started on Monday in Berlin, Germany and will draw to a close in Alltech’s European Bioscience Centre in Dunboyne, Ireland.

The group will tour farms with herd sizes ranging from 120 to 3,600 dairy cows.

Innovation and Technology

The Alltech Euro Tour is set to showcase the innovations and technologies being adopted in each country and will provide a networking opportunity for farmers to discuss and share ideas about the future of dairy production.

The host farms have been carefully selected and include a farm in Germany that is developing its own brand of milk and a French farm specialising in genetics. Attendees are also set to enjoy farm tours and knowledge-sharing, along a range of social, cultural and sight-seeing delights at each stop on the tour.

Julien Martin, Regional Director, North-West Europe, Alltech said:

“'Alltech is delighted to bring together this group on a farm tour with a difference! We're travelling over 2,500km in just four days to see seven contrasting farms, each showcasing their own systems and approaches. The tour is intended to ignite new ideas, new connections and be an enjoyable experience for all,”
