Sutherland Monitor Farm Meeting - January

Tuesday, January 30, 2018 - 11:00 to 15:00
Brora Golf Club
Golf Road

The next meeting of the Sutherland Monitor Farm will focus on the important, but often neglected, topics of achieving lifestyle balance and succession planning.

At the meeting, Heather Wildman from Saviour Associates will lead a workshop aimed at supporting local farmers and crofters to plan and tackle this often rather sensitive subject.

Mrs Wildman will suggest ways for those who attend the meeting to work with their families and prepare for their own succession. She will also address some of the reasons why those involved in farming too often avoid planning for succession and suggest some questions farmers and crofters should ask themselves at that start of the process.

After lunch, the group will visit  Clynelish Farm where the Ballantynes will give an overview of how their winter grazing system has been working and share the recent calf weights with the group. They will also unveil their plans for the Sutherland monitor farm for 2018.

The meeting at Brora Golf Club on 30th January will begin at 11am, with coffee/registration from 10.30am.

If you are interested in attending can you please book your place (and lunch!) with the facilitators Willie Budge or Cat MacGregor (details below)
