  17. HDRF Conference 2024

    Moredun Research Institute, Edinburgh Multiple day event: 18 – 19 Nov

    The Hannah Dairy Research Foundation is delighted to announce the sixth Conference in the Next Generation Dairying series, which will be held at the Moredun Research Institute, Edinburgh, on Monday 18th and Tuesday 19th November 2024 (“lunch to lunch”). The theme for this year’s Next Generation Data-Led Dairying Conference revolves around the use of data in the dairy sector. In an era where “Artificial Intelligence” has revolutionised the acronym AI for farmers, the opportunities offered by the collection, processing and use of detailed information are substantial. So, perhaps, are the risks. There are significant challenges to be overcome if the full potential of data-based decision-making is to be realised. How should the data be gathered in the first place? How much data is needed, and can there be an excess that hinders rather than helps? Who owns the data? How should it be processed and interpreted to obtain maximum benefit?
