On Wednesday 13th November, we held the first in a series of events in conjunction with AHDB to set farmers up with the Farmbench tool.

Farmbench is a really useful tool for understanding farm businesses and fits well into carbon footprinting, ELMS development and facilitation fund training.

We talked the farmers through breaking up their businesses into different enterprises to allocate costs (i.e Breeding Ewes, Store lambs, Suckler herd, heifer rearing etc.), once this is done it is easy to keep the tool updated.

You can find out more about farmbench on the AHDB website here. We will be running similar events across the South West in the future so keep an eye out for invites on our e-news, or on our events page here.
