Sheep Conference 2019 – ‘Future Proofing your Sheep Enterprise’ – Book your place now

Date published: 04 September 2019


There’s just under a month to go, plans for the joint stakeholder conference entitled ‘Future Proofing your Sheep Enterprise’ are almost complete.

The 2019 Sheep Conference organising committee met earlier this week to finalise conference arrangements.

The committee met earlier this week to discuss arrangements for the two events which will take place on Wednesday 2 October 2019 at Greenmount Campus and on Thursday 3 October 2019 at the Silverbirch Hotel, Omagh.

Both events will commence at 6:00pm.  

The conference will focus on a range of topics to include improving lamb production from grass, benefits of using good genetics, protecting your flock from Ovine Pulmonary Adenocarcinoma (OPA) and maximising market returns. 

All speakers will provide valuable information to help you improve and strengthen the performance of your sheep enterprise. The event will also be utilising an information communication technology tool through which attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and get involved in the discussion. To participate in this technology, please remember to bring along a mobile phone.

We anticipate high levels of interest in both events so please book early to secure your place and to avoid disappointment.

Please note conference cost is £15/person and this includes a light buffet which will be served at 6pm.

If interested in attending, please book via the UFU website.

If you have any difficulties booking online, please contact Angela Scott at UFU Headquarters on 028 9037 0222.
