Open days to promote best Welsh farming practices

Three new farms have joined the Demonstration Farm network in Wales, part of the Farming Connect Sheep and Beef Development Programme run by Hybu Cig Cymru (HCC)/Meat Promotion Wales.

Two of these farms are situated in South Wales, one at Penrhos, Raglan and the other at Llansannor, Crowbridge with the third in Llangernyw, Abergele.

A number of open days and events will be held on the farms with the aim of providing an opportunity for local farmers to implement any relevant techniques and ideas on their own farms.

The aim of Mark Jarvis who manages 300-acre Gelli Goll farm consisting of a flock of 500 ewes and 120 store cattle, in Llansannor, Crowbridge, is to focus on increasing efficiency, improving health and forage issues.
