The Green family will be on the hunt for bright ideas for 2018 at the next Morayshire Monitor Farm meeting on 12 December.

At the event the group will review the various activities which have taken place over 2017, as well as discussing the possibilities Corskie Farm should explore in 2018.

The event will begin on farm with a demonstration of different sheep handling facilities at Corskie as the family is considering investing in a new system.

The meeting will continue at the nearby Fochabers Public Institute with discussions on calving indicators and detectors, particularly focusing on the Moocall calving sensor which they have been trying out at Corskie.

Project facilitators Derek Hanton and Samantha Stewart will then take the group though some of the highlights of 2017 including soil health and compaction, biostimulants and heifer pelvic measuring, as well as a session on how the spring and winter barley trials have fared this year.

The Monitor Farm meeting is free of charge but to assist with catering it would be appreciated if you can book a place by contacting Samantha Stewart (contact details below).
