Strategic Farm Event – Cheshire

November 29, 2017 @ 10:30 am - 1:45 pm

Free

Strategic Farms for Beef & Lamb, part of the wider Farm Excellence Platform, aims to demonstrate clear advances in on-farm productivity by monitoring performance and implementing best practice. Ian farms 98ha in Cheshire and runs 70 Aberdeen Angus pedigree and cross-bred cattle, as well as two Angus bulls. He takes stock through to finishing, selling most into the deadweight market. Keeping up to date with technology is key for Ian as he enjoys demonstrating his farming techniques to others and helping people to learn where their food comes from. Having just started to measure grass, Ian is keen to improve and focus upon his grassland management techniques in order to save money.
