Dairy Research Partnership 2016-2021

Our five-year Dairy Research Partnership initiative began in June 2016. It was funded by AHDB Dairy (£1,700,000) with financial contributions from the academic partners - University of Nottingham, Harper Adams University, Royal Veterinary College and SRUC - bringing the total to £2,100,000. 

What does the research partnership involve?

The partnership, led by University of Nottingham, addresses three of our strategic priorities:

  1. Feed efficiency and sustainability
  2. Optimising cow performance through health & welfare
  3. Creating a positive image for dairy farming.
