Farming For a Better Climate Newsletter - Winter 2020-21 (No.21)
Farming For a Better Climate Podcast
From climate change and rewilding, to efficiency savings in the dairy sector and grazing management in the beef herd, Farming for a Better Climate has already produced some top notch podcasts with the help of speakers such as John Kerr from Woodhead Dairy in East Ayrshire and previous climate change focus farmer, and Sam Parson at Balkaskie Estate in Fife.
In our most recent episode, SAC Consulting Sheep and Grassland Specialist Poppy Frater speaks to Nikki Yoxall from Grampian Graziers and Finn Weddle, Farm Advisor and Director at Reforesting Scotland about the many benefits farmers and land owners can achieve through agroforestry systems. It’s a really interesting listen.
You can catch up with these and other Farming for a Better Climate podcasts on our Farming for a Better Climate Audioboom page. We are always looking for stories about how farmers are doing things differently, reducing emissions and improving their business alongside adapting to climate change. Could you be our next speaker?
