EVENT: book tickets now....LILIS 2017 (Livestock in Low Input Systems)
Scottish Organic Producers Association (SOPA) is inviting those from across the agricultural sector to attend this year’s Livestock in Low Input Systems (LILIS) conference on June 16th 2017.
Returning to Scotland in 2017, the LILIS conference will look at the successes and challenges of livestock production in organic, upland and similar low-input systems. Topics under discussion this year will be the use of intercropping and companion planting, and how simple innovations can get boost the productive yield from grass swards.
SOPA are joining forces with Organic Farmers & Growers (OF&G) to host the conference, which will be held on the 16th of June 2017 from 11am to 3pm at Lower Mill of Tynet farm, near Fochabers in the North East of Scotland.
Organiser Debs Roberts said “Last year’s conference was a great success, and we believe that it’s important to continue to bring people who work in and around agriculture together to discuss the ever-changing landscape of the industry, especially in the light of last year’s Brexit vote. We’re really interested to explore how farmers are moving away from the subsidy-based culture and adopting simple techniques that improve yield without intensive use of inputs such as fertilisers. LILIS gives us a stage to discuss these ideas.”
