How can you enhance your ‘Natural Capital’ to benefit your farm business?
Dairy farmer John Kerr, from Woodhead Farm in Newmilns saved £63,000 during the four years that he was a Climate Change Focus Farmer as part of the Farming For a Better Climate initiative. These savings were made with lots of small but cost-effective changes that resulted in improved efficiency of production across the farm, examples include implementing a liming programme, producing higher quality silage, testing the quality of his colostrum, installing cow tracks to improve grazing management and improving ventilation and light levels within his cow shed. John will be attending this event to discuss his experiences of identifying and making necessary changes to improve farm business resilience.
We will also have guest speakers Jan Voss from Agrovista and independent agricultural consultant Mark Tripney of I Soils Ltd who will both be looking at utilising the ‘Natural Capital’ on your farm to making it work for you in our changing climate. We will look at the practical steps that can be taken to improve natural capital and how that ties to business resilience and improved efficiency, cutting carbon and saving cash.
