About Loppington Monitor Farm

  • Monitor Farm since June 2019
  • Cereals, sheep and beef

Rory Lay runs a 457 ha mixed family farm with cereals, sheep and beef. The arable rotation is based around the livestock, so includes a lot of turnips, fodder beet and maize. Rory recently converted the arable business to strip tilling which he says has given him huge cost savings, as well as improving the soil conditions. During the three years of the Monitor Farm programme he’d like to look in more detail at costs and benchmarking; health and safety on farm; soil health; and assessing the farm as a whole – livestock and arable together.
