British Cattle Breeders Conference 2017

Practical Innovation - Today's Challenges for Tomorrow's Generation

Practical Innovation – Today’s Challenges for Tomorrow’s Generation was the theme of the recent British Cattle Breeders Conference in January, where experts from around the globe gave a series of presentations outlining the latest technical developments in cattle breeding, with delegates also receiving insights into the management of some of the most efficient beef and dairy units in the country.

With thought provoking, interesting and informative presentations from the speakers over the 2 ½ days, complimented with a chance to network and socialise during the annual club dinner on Tuesday evening, which took a ‘Burns’ theme complete with piper and haggis, made the 2017 conference one to remember.

January’s conference also saw the retirement of the club’s President Dr Maurice Bichard after six years.  A presentation was made to Dr Bichard during the club dinner, and a warm welcome was given to the 2017 President Professor Mike Coffey.
