Agribusiness Seminars


We are delighted to partner with Lynaire Ryan, an Agribusiness Consultant, based in New Zealand to deliver a series of Business Courses. Coming from working with Dairy NZ and as a result of encouragement from Dr. Pat Dillon, Teagasc,  these business seminars are being brought to Irish Farmers.

Since 1997 Lynaire has been involved in developing and facilitating seminars for dairy farm business owners in NZ and Ireland. These focus on business, financial and strategic planning training.  Examples include:

  • DairyNZ’s Mark and Measure - over 2500 dairy farmers have attended these highly acclaimed seminars
  • Irish Wealth Creation - 16 day course – attended by over 200 farmers
  • Bank of New Zealand Farm Business Growth Programme – two day courses

We would like to offer dairy farm business owners the opportunity to attend one or both seminars in Autumn 2019.  We highly recommend attending both seminars.  We strongly encourage spouses (where relevant) to attend the Strategic Management seminar.
