Farm Excellence: Dairy

Our network of Strategic Dairy Farms share good practice through on-farm and virtual events, giving you access to industry experts and the latest research.

Strategic Farms follow either an all-year-round or block calving system so you can see relevant real world demonstrations and get ideas to make improvements on your farm.

The farms are solid performers who openly and honestly share their experiences and performance figures at on-farm and virtual meetings.

You’ll hear about a range of topics from mastitis and managing calves to breeding and buildings. We’re confident you’ll find something of interest.

The Strategic Dairy Farm programme is funded by AHDB and the Betty Lawes Foundation.

We're currently looking for new farms to join our network; find out more about how to become a Strategic Dairy Farm.

The farms form part of our Farm Excellence platform, a network of inspirational farmers who open their doors to help you learn, share and create new ideas to drive innovation and productivity.
