Devon and Cornwall Beef & Lamb Monitor Farm launch event
Rob and Liz Priest from Kingsford Farm, Holsworthy and Scadghill Farm, Bude join AHDB’s Farm Excellence programme as the new Beef & Lamb Monitor Farm in the South West of England.
The 70 ha organic farm in Holsworthy, Devon, runs a flock of 480 breeding ewes and a suckler herd of 75 Stabiliser cattle. Keen to seize opportunities and expand the business, Rob and Liz recently took on Scadghill Farm in Bude, Cornwall. The new farm has begun organic conversion to fall in line with the Priest’s farming system. For more information about the farm, visit https://ahdb.org.uk/farm-excellence/kingsford-farm.
This first open meeting will provide the opportunity for farmers and industry to learn more about this exciting new Monitor Farm, discuss key priorities and input into future meetings.
The event will include a farm walk and discussion on topics such as:
- Livestock practices
- Grassland management strategies
- Farm performance
- Organic conversion
Those who attend can also sign up for a new farmer discussion group which will be linked to the Monitor Farm. Details on how you can join the group will be provided during the event.
