Register now for free QMS conference

FARMERS have been invited to learn how technology and scientific research can improve their efficiency and profitability at a free conference.

Quality Meat Scotland are running the 'Profitability from Performance' conference, which is free to attend, on January 16 at the Apex City Quay Hotel, Dundee.

The one-day event will review ways in which efficiency and profitability can be improved at every stage of the red meat production chain, and will show case some research work supported by QMS.

Guest speakers from across the UK and Ireland will cover a range of topics relevant to those working in different sectors of the industry - from disease control and animal health to the latest efficiency boosting technologies.

"The 2013 conference programme includes highly-regarded speakers from Scotland's leading scientific organisations. Last year's event was over-subscribed and we would encourage anyone interested in attending to register early to avoid disappointment," said Andy McGowan, QMS head of industry development.

"Ensuring producers are kept abreast of the latest scientific developments and technology helps ensure they are at the front line of opportunities to improve their efficiency and profitability, particularly at a time of rising input costs."

The QMS Research and Development Conference is free to attend (lunch included) but spaces are limited. To register for the event and receive further information, please complete the registration form at www.qmscotland.co.uk, email info@qmscotland.co.uk or call 0131 472 4040.
