NE Organic Discussion Group – Mini Conference – Livestock


The livestock half of a mini-organic conference. Two topics organic livestock markets and the value of dynamic health planning and an integrated approach leading to increased efficiency. There will also be a short “ask the vet session”. An ideal opportunity to ask those burning questions.

We have two great speakers. Lesley Wylie a consultant in the SAC Consulting livestock team. She previously worked as a cattle buyer for a meat processor, building relationships with farmers, advising on nutrition, breeding and marketing. She has a good understanding of the red meat supply chain and the challenges within it. So, an ideal speaker on livestock marketing. She will cover –

Available Markets

  • Market Specification and how to hit the spec
  • Challenges

Tim Geraghty is a SRUC Veterinary Centre Manager at Craibstone and has many years of experience of veterinary matters. He has an interest in dynamic health planning and the integration of livestock health issues with nutrition and management systems which is the organic philosophy.

In addition to speaking there will be time for discussion and questions.
