Attend the AHDB Beef & Lamb Strategic Farm meeting, hosted by Mark Jelley at The Saracen’s Head. The focus for this event will be on assessing the profitability of your livestock enterprise and understanding the skills needed to evaluate your business.

As part of the strategic farm project, Mark has been working to assess business performance and cost of production. This event will give you an insight into the tools the business is using but also provide you with practical advice on how to start understanding the costs of your own business.

Topics will include:

  • How the strategic farm has understood business finances
  • Where to start when understanding your cost of production
  • Measuring technical performance
    • What KPI’s should I be using?
    • Number of calves reared
    • Weaning weights
    • Feed usage
  • Tools on offer to help including Farmbench and the Brexit Impact Calculator
  • Understanding the numbers across all of the strategic farms

It will also be a great opportunity to hear and discuss the changes that Mark has made to his business over the last year and capture anything that you may be able to apply to your own business.
