It’s here again. After the successful re-introduction of the Cirencester producer conference in December 2006, the Organic Research Centre-Elm Farm is pleased to announce that the second conference in the series is confirmed. It will take place at the Royal Agricultural College, Cirencester over two days starting at lunchtime on Monday 10th December.
The conference will feature a subsidised producer rate as last year with an all-in rate of £95 + VAT – this will be inclusive of meals, refreshments, accommodation and the conference dinner. Other delegates will pay the full rate and this will be announced shortly.
The programme will be entirely producer focused. with five strands to the workshops – growers, poultry, arable, dairy and beef & sheep.These may combine to run joint sessions on matters of common interest such as livestock feed. Feed availability, its price and the pros and cons of increasing on-farm production will feature in the workshop. Other topics under consideration will deal with issues relating to energy and energy use, carbon foot-printing, arable crop production, composting and recycling, two tier standards, equivalence, antibiotics etc.
