Pasture Summit was established in 2017 by a group of progressive and committed farm business owners and dairy sector experts from across New Zealand and Ireland. In November 2018, Pasture Summit conferences were held on the North and South Islands of New Zealand. The objective was to bring together a positive and vibrant community of farmers, to secure a profitable future, for this and the next generation of dairy farmers and our dairy stakeholders. The next Pasture Summit will take place in Ireland on 10 and 11 June 2020
A bi annual event between Ireland and New Zealand, the next Pasture Summit in 2020 will be held in Ireland,  with the 2022 event returning to New Zealand.

PASTURE   SUMMIT 2020 Message from organising chairman; “Ireland and New Zealand are unique as pasture/grass based farming industries.  In 2018 a ‘Pasture Summit’ was held in NZ bringing both countries together to discuss  topics of interest that have an impact from a production and research point of view.  The concept for this gathering came from some Irish and New Zealand farmers seeing  how each industry could benefit from greater interaction and dialogue.  The idea is that each country host a conference every 4 years. Ireland is hosting in 2020.  We have had over 60 farmers and researchers putting their thoughts together on how  to make this an event with a difference, to complement, rather than compete with  existing events being held in Ireland. Pasture Summit will deal with current topics in an innovative and imaginative way.”               There will be six core topics covered at the Irish event.   •	Grassland productivity •	Changing the image/perception of dairy farming •	People and progression •	Human health and grass fed dairy •	Optimising financial performance of pasture based dairy •	Dairy farming and the environment                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             Mike Magan
