Applications open: AHDB Beef & Lamb Monitor Farm project
We have recently opened up the application process for our AHDB Beef & Lambs Monitor Farm programme, which may be of interest to some of your members.
We are looking for five new farmers to join our existing 15 Strategic Farms as part of our Farm Excellence network https://ahdb.org.uk/farm-excellence-strategy . The programme will be every similar to the Strategic farm programme with the aim being to improve the performance and profitability of the host farmers business whilst providing a platform for like-minded farmers to share best practice.
The four year programme is designed to equip the Monitor Farmer with the tools and techniques to evaluate their businesses strengths and weaknesses. Plus, they will receive advice and guidance from AHDB specialists, industry consultants and an audience of farmers who can support the growth and development of their businesses.
