Are you Herefordshire’s Grassland Farmer of the Future?

HFYFC are working with the Herefordshire Grassland Society, Herefordshire NFU and the Wye & Usk Foundation to bring you an exciting new competiton!

The competition will be launched with an on-farm event where competitors can see examples of excellent grass utilisation and pick up tips from local advisors who are experts in various aspects of good grassland management.

Competitors will then write a report to show how they would utilise grassland management skills to develop a fictional farm which is struggling to make a profit due to increasing input costs and reducing sales prices.

All prize winners will receive free HGS and NFU membership for a year!

Competition timeline:

  • 11am, 8th November 2014: Farm walk, The Whittern, Almeley, HR3 6LD
  • 24th November 2014: Report submission deadline
  • 9th December 2014: Prize-giving at NFU & HGS county meeting

Entries due by Monday, 3rd November. Call 01432 274 187 or email countyadmin@hfyfc.org.uk to enter.
