On-farm event to explore future of sustainable beef production
The Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) has invited farmers, producers and the wider food industry to learn more about the future of sustainable beef farming and low carbon meat production at its on-farm event, ‘Unveiling the future of low carbon beef farming‘.
The Defra-funded event, which will be held on Tuesday 20th February 2024, will focus on the integration of dairy cross store cattle into a low carbon, pasture-fed system, with various aspects reviewed, including performance, health, financial viability, soil health and biodiversity.
AHDB said that the knowledge gained from the project will “contribute significantly” to the broader sustainability goals of the agriculture sector and the farm to fork food chain.
Leaders from AHDB, Breedr, Dunbia and FAI Farms will be in attendance, sharing insights, findings and implications of different farming practices, followed by a Q&A session, giving everyone the opportunity to ask questions, share experiences and participate in an open discussion with farmers, industry and project collaborators.
Emma Steele, beef and lamb knowledge exchange manager at AHDB, said: “This event is a chance for attendees to be at the forefront of industry advancements, gain valuable knowledge and network with like-minded individuals who share a passion for sustainable and efficient farming practices.”
