The AHDB has been awarded £1 million from the Betty Lawes’ Foundation to expand its strategic dairy farm network.

This new financial support means the total size of the network will increase to 25 farms across Great Britain.

Welcoming the funding from the Betty Lawes Foundation, Gwyn Jones, AHDB Dairy Chair, said: “This is a step change for British dairy farmers and a significant investment in their future. Our collaborative approach means we can showcase excellence across the industry with a larger spread of farms across Great Britain. It will mean more farmers can access the benefits that strategic dairy farms offer.”

Each of the farms will follow AHDB’s strategic farm model and represent either all-year-round or block calving systems. They will showcase best-practice, host on-farm events and each farm will openly share their figures against AHDB Dairy’s key performance indicators.
