Alltech Euro Tour 2018
Join a group of 130 farmers from around Europe on a dairy farm tour, traveling to four countries in five days!
The tour provides a unique opportunity to step onto dairy farms in Italy, France, Belgium and Ireland. You will have a chance to meet the host farmers, learn about the systems they have in place and hear first-hand about their own experiences.
Taking a step away from your own farm for few days to see what approaches and new innovations are driving performance on other farms, can be a hugely valuable experience. The tour provides an opportunity to meet other like-minded farmers to discuss, learn and share ideas about the opportunities and challenges facing modern dairy production.
Throughout the journey you will have a chance to unwind and enjoy a host of social, cultural and sightseeing delights along the way!
