The Board of the Dairy Research Trust has agreed to fund a programme to increase dairy profitability and sustainability which will be carried out by Teagasc between 2017 and 2021. This follows consultations which included a review of the previous 5 year programme, the current needs and plans of the sector and takes account of the new challenges which will face the industry in future.
Leading up to this agreement, the Board of the Dairy Research reviewed the objectives and processes for putting in place a new programme.
There will be a review of progress after 3 years, and funding may be changed depending on the performance of the programme.
