AgResearch/Riddet Institute Dairy Industry Workshop

WHEN: 29-30 August 2018
WHERE: Palmerston North

The inaugural Dairy Industry Workshop is being held in Palmerston North on the 29th & 30th August 2018. AgResearch Ltd and the Riddet Institute are jointly hosting the Workshop to bring the post-farm gate dairy industry and science community together as there currently isn’t a forum in which this can happen.

The purpose of the workshop will be to disseminate information on what pre-competitive research is being undertaken, and to provide a forum to discuss science and industry wide issues.

The format will be a mix of seminar and breakout sessions on specific topics. Seminar session titles are outlined in the attached flyer. We have secured three renown international speakers to headline the workshop and we will be releasing more information on the speakers and detailed programme in the coming weeks.

You can register for the conference at https://dairy-industry-workshop.lilregie.com

Note that due to the venue there will be a limit on the total number of attendees.

It’s a hot topic today with the growing trend in plant-based diets. Professor Teresa Ann Davis (Professor of Pediatrics, USDA/ARS Children’s Nutrition Research Center, Baylor College of Medicine) cuts through the myths to examine why animal- sourced protein is needed in a healthy diet.
