Monitor farmers Bill Gray and Peter Eccles will also update the group on how things have gone at Prestonhall and Saughland Farms since the last meeting

After lunch James Bolesworth from CRM Agri Commodities will discuss grain marketing. He has been working with Bill Gray on how to reduce the risk in grain marketing, and the session will cover the marketing process, managing forward selling and managing risk.
