Farm Excellence: Beef & Lamb

Our network of 15 Strategic Farms opens up their businesses to share best practice, practical demonstrations of the latest research and advice from AHDB and networking opportunities through our discussion groups.

Throughout the year, our farmers host on farm and digital events giving you access to industry experts and a network of like minded farmers. Topics for discussion include grass and forage, animal health and welfare, genetics, farm performance and much more. After attending an event there’s also more support for you via links to our knowledge library, podcasts and recordings so you can catch up in your own time before planning and putting the advice into practice on your farm.

Like many beef and lamb farmers, our Monitor Farms represent a diverse mix of farming systems located across the country, all with experience of different land typography, rain fall and soil type.

Our Farm Excellence programme is expanding! We’re currently recruiting an extra five new beef and lamb farms in England. We will be announcing our Monitor Farms this summer.

Make sure to update your contact details and subscribe to Ruminant News, our twice yearly magazine and ENews, our monthly email newsletter. The Monitor Farms will join 15 existing Strategic Farms in the project.
