Agriculture & Progress, a platform where the agricultural and primary food processing industry join forces for sustainable agricultural production.Integrated and innovative crop production techniques, including the use of plant protection products in Integrated Pest Management, have been used by European farmers for many years and are constantly being improved. These reliable and safe tools allow farmers to meet production standards both in terms of quantity and in terms of quality.Society is however, more and more critical and raises questions on agricultural practices. We have heard those concerns and are putting the platform at the heart of the debate, taking into account the demands and expectations of consumers.As it is clear that progress is needed in the safety linked to the use of plant protection products, we work towards ensuring the use of safe products for farmers, the environment and consumers. In that context, we work to improve practices to move towards a minimum of inputs while trying to continue to improve our sustainability. Farmers like progress and are ready to welcome new innovative techniques. However, it needs to be understood that research, studies, trials, implementation and the overall transfer of knowledge is a process that takes time and cannot be done overnight.The aim of our transversal, European platform is to provide society and decision makers in a pedagogic way with answers and suggestions on the needs and challenges of guaranteeing sustainable agricultural production and the important role of innovation in this context. Agriculture & Progress aims to establish a strong communication with civil society, local networks and the media.Confronted with bans and restrictions on the use of plant protection products and new breeding techniques (NBTs), the farming and primary food processing communities’ capacity to sustain production and to further improve competitiveness and good agricultural practices is jeopardised in the short and medium term. Our goal is to plead for the development of a solid regulatory framework that guarantees an appropriate adaptation, a balance between health, environmental protection, and qualitative agricultural production whilst guaranteeing an adequate level of income for the farming community.

SAFE – Safe Food Advocacy Europe was created in 2015 out of a concern for public health related to food issues. One of the most influential factors of the EU’s food legislation is lobbying, indeed the large majority of EU legislation is influenced by lobbyists. There are more than lobbyists in Brussels, 70% of them are working for businesses, only 10% work for NGOs. Thus, SAFE was created to ensure that consumer’s health and concerns remain at the core of the EU’s food legislation. SAFE is the only NGO in Brussels focusing only on the protection and representation of EU consumers in the food sector. SAFE monitors the EU’s food legislation process and cooperates with EU legislators and its actors to draft comprehensive food regulations. Mission Strengthening the voice of civil society in the EU debate over food regulation, thereby reinforcing participatory democracy in the EU. Increasing public awareness of food safety issues, noticeably by organising training programmes and seminars designed to allow citizens to make informed decisions on the food they eat by learning how to read food labelling (additives, food colourings, MSG). SAFE is giving training to children and teenager in school to reduce excessive sugar and food colorants consumption. Supporting independent research by identifying priority areas for research and raising funds.

Given the price costs volatility experienced on farms this year and the prospects for much change over the coming years in dairy farming, there is much to be discussed on the day. Joe Patton, Head of Dairy KT Teagasc explains how the conference will hear from leading food and dairy industry experts who will outline their views on how the quality and quantity of dairy products is likely to evolve in the coming years. We will also feature a range of practical papers of interest to dairy farmers. Michael Dineen, Teagasc Research Officer explains how at the conference we will be discussing the animal benefits that can be achieved when swards are optimally managed, the animal performance effects when white clover is included in the sward, and also the nutritional responses to supplementation and optimal strategic supplementation guidelines. Emer Kennedy, Teagasc Research Officer outlines how it is expected that over 1.6 million calves will be born on Irish dairy farms this Spring. At the conference we want equip you with the knowledge to give these calves the best start and to keep them healthy throughout the whole rearing period. in terms of housing, just how much space does a calf need? If you don't have enough space, we want to guide you through a few options that are available and also give you tips in improving labour efficiency while ensuring calves stay healthy and happy. Stuart Childs, Teagasc Dairy Specialist explains that at the fourth and final session of the conference, Dairy Advisors Adrian O’Callaghan and James O'Donoghue will look at benchmarking dairy costs and key performance indicators (KPI’s) for 2023.

As our climate changes and we experience more extreme weather patterns, becoming more resilient and efficient with water use on farm can be critical to managing drier spells on your land. In this video we discuss installing rainwater harvesters, which can help store water on your farm to become more resilient to water scarcity.

How to complete the batch file upload for multiple horses on the equine census 2022
29 Nov 2022
Department of Agricu...
We will undertake the second annual #equinecensus on November 30, 2022. Equine animals include horses, ponies, donkeys, mules, asses and zebras. Any person who keeps any equines in the State will be required to submit a completed census return within a specified timeline. The census is designed to create an initial link between each equine kept in the State on census day and the premises where it is kept at that time. A profile of all equines present on a holding on that date will be created on the Department’s Animal Identification and Movement (AIM) system, which houses the central equine database. It is expected that the formal linking of equines to their keepers will increase compliance with equine legislation which places responsibility on the recorded keeper for ensuring the health and welfare of all animals in his/her care. Keepers who do not already have an agfood.ie account must register at www.agfood.ie to obtain personal login details to submit their census information. This should be done in advance of November by logging on to www.agfood.ie and choosing the option to ‘Register’.
