Strategic Farm Event – Cirencester
November 29, 2017 @ 10:30 am - 2:00 pmFree
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. David farms 103ha with 60 South Devon and Sussex X Salers cows and breeds his own replacements. David hopes that being a Strategic Farm will provide the opportunity to share information and engage with other farmers, which he thinks is often the best way to learn about different techniques and make improvements.
