An operation group involving participants with experience of project management, dairy farming and lean management alongside a co-operative of 128 dairy farmers was established to pilot the use of lean management techniques on 30 dairy farms based in South West Scotland. The aim of the project was to provide farmers with a new lean management based approach to explore the potential for ongoing improvement and to stimulate positive changes on the farms that participated. Due to the innovative nature of the work the project received 100% funding from the Knowledge Transfer and Innovation Fund (KTIF).
