The first episode in the Farm Excellence series of the AHDB podcast focuses on cereals & oilseeds. The Monitor Farm programme comprises a network of farmers from across the UK and Northern Ireland committed to driving innovation and best practice. They host regular meetings at their farms in which they discuss issues facing agriculture in their region.
This November saw the Monitor Farm Conference take place in Nottingham: an event for Monitor Farmers to come together and collaborate. We caught up with three of our newest Monitor Farmers: Richard Ling (Diss Monitor Farm
in Norfolk), Rory Lay (Loppington Monitor Farm
in the West Midlands) and Ashley Jones (Saltash Monitor Farm
in the West Country). They discussed their views on this years’ conference, what makes a good leader and why they decided to become Monitor Farmers.
