Description"Louise Ander, Pete Bone and Diriba Kumssa represented the MagNet project at the British Grassland Society, British Society of Animal Sciences (BSAS) and British Soil Science Society (BSSS) Winter Meeting - ""Minerals. Closing the Circle - trace element supply in soils, plants and animals"" (Great Malvern). Louise presented a farmer recruitment (Magnet WP2) poster and a talk outlining the project rationale and activities to date and Pete Bone gave a presentation based on wider aspects of his professional expertise.
This meeting was dominated by presentations and an audience drawn from fertiliser, ruminant health (including veterinary) and nutrition, seed/grassland/silage companies, as well as researcher attendees. The Agricultural Lime Association were in attendance and are keen to exchange information immediately, and to keep in touch with the project progress and outputs. Further contacts were made with those in the farming sector (and questionnaires given out), and previous contacts (from 20th Feb 2017) reinforced, including contacts for further KE as the project progresses.
