Summer Meeting 2023
Henfaes Research Centre (Bangor University), Abergwyngregyn
This was the final visit of the meeting. As well as being Bangor University’s research farm, Henfaes Research Centre is also where the University’s commercial flock of Welsh Mountain ewes are based. With land rising from sea level to amongst the highest mountains in Wales, Henfaes is a unique asset for teaching and research about agricultural systems, soils, land use, conservation, and more. During the visit, delegates were shown a range of experimental work focused on measuring and reducing greenhouse gas emissions from livestock systems, microplastics in agriculture, clover-safe herbicides, mixed species leys in sheep systems, and the place for trees on farms.
