Farm Excellence: Beef & Lamb

Could you be our next host farmer? Find out what the Beef & Lamb Monitor Farm project is all about, the benefits of being involved and how to apply.

We want to welcome five new Monitor Farms to the Farm Excellence programme.

The new hosts will join 15 existing Strategic Farms in the project, which aims to deliver measurable improvements to the performance and profitability of the host business, while also providing a platform for like-minded farmers to share best practice.

Could I be a Beef & Lamb host farmer?

If you're willing to open up your business and share information and decision-making with the farming community, we'd like to hear from you. Please note:

  • The deadline for Beef & Lamb applications is 30 September 2020
  • The programme will begin in December 2020 and will last four years
  • You will need to host eight on-farm meetings over the four-year programme 

Becoming a host farmer means you will be receptive to new ideas and willing to embrace change. You will be happy to open your farm to events and provide case studies for AHDB, local and national press.
