Open days to help boost farm productivity

Dec 31 2014

Two events aimed at farmers who want to improve the health, productivity and profitability of their flocks and herds will be held in January.

The open days in Newtown and at Glynllifon have been organised by Hybu Cig Cymru – Meat Promotion Wales.

“Farmers are keen to improve all aspects of their business which is why HCC has planned these events with the intention of helping them achieve their goal,” said Luned Evans, HCC’s Industry Development Officer.

The first event at Coleg Meirion Dwyfor, Glynllifon will be held between 2pm and 4pm on Monday, January 12th. Sion Parry of Signet will discuss performance recording while veterinary surgeon Geraint Jones of Milfeddygon Deufor will talk about the health status of flocks and herds.

The second event will be held at Llwyn y Brain Farm, Adfa, Newtown between 2pm and 4pm on Tuesday, January 13th by kind permission of John and Sarah Yeomans.

Sion Parry will again speak, and he will be joined by veterinary surgeon Sarah Meredith of Trefaldwyn Vets.

Farmers at both events will also be given a practical demonstration of how electronic identification recording (EID) can benefit their flocks.

“This is an excellent opportunity to get first hand advice from experts and I would encourage as many farmers as possible to register their attendance,” said Miss Evans.

Anyone wishing to attend either event can do so in a number of ways.

They can either phone HCC on 01970 625050, email or text their name and either ‘Glynllifon’ or ‘Llwyn y Brain’ to 07970907229.
