The scientific work being carried out under the DairyBio and DataGene programs really puts AgriBio at the cutting edge of improvements.

Dairyfarmers wanting an insight into the latest science in pasture improvement and herd genetics have been invited to a Dairy Open Day at AgriBio next week.

Visitors to Bundoora facility in Melbourne will learn how the DairyBio and DataGene initiatives are helping farmers increase profitability through forage and genetic improvements.

The open day has been timed to coincide with the 2018 Australian Dairy Conference.

Gippsland dairy farmer Ron Paynter said the work being carried out at AgriBio was critical to the long-term sustainability of Australia’s dairy industry.

“In such a highly-competitive global industry, Australia’s advantage comes from being smart about how we manage our feed and our herd genetics and DairyBio and DataGene programs are a key part of that,” Mr Paynter said.

“The scientific work being carried out under the DairyBio and DataGene programs really puts AgriBio at the cutting edge of improvements in both of those areas.”

The open day will demonstrate how farmers can leverage the latest data and research on their own farms.

It will also give dairyfarmers their first chance to see a new high-throughput plant phenotyping facility.

The open day will be held between 12pm and 4pm on Tuesday, February 13, at the AgriBio Centre for AgriBioscience, 5 Ring Rd, Bundoora, 3083.
