Be sure not to miss the MPO’s National Congress with the theme “Sustainable dairy farming”, which will be held at Lythwood Lodge, KwaZulu-Natal on 7 September this year. Our keynote speaker, Jude L. Capper, PhD, is an independent livestock sustainability consultant based in Oxfordshire, the United Kingdom. Jude’s research focuses on modelling the environmental impact of livestock production systems, specifically dairy and beef, including the effect of specific management practices and technology use. Her professional goal is to communicate the importance of factors affecting the sustainability of the livestock industry to enhance the knowledge and understanding of food production stakeholders from the rancher and farmer through to the retailer, policymaker and consumer. Her topic at the Congress will be: How do we maintain dairy sustainability in an ever-changing world?
Rob Caskie will be acting as the Master of Ceremonies at the gala dinner and will also be our after-dinner speaker.
KZN milk producers and their partners can attend the event free of charge coutesy of MPO KZN.
