Protecting soil quality, targeting nutrient use and maximising feed efficiency can all help to make best use of resources on the farm. Improving farm efficiency will help to strengthen the business, improve environmental performance and lead towards a lower carbon footprint. Research has shown that the farms with the lowest emissions are often those that are most technically efficient.
There are lots of small actions you can take to make a difference and help your farm thrive in a carbon-conscious future:
- Take a look at the improve farm profitability section for ideas about how you can save time or money on routine tasks
- Consider how you can improve business resilience in a changing climate
- Find out what other farmers are doing. Take a look at the Farmer Case Studies
- Come to one of our events. With specialist speakers, these events look at practical measures you can consider for your farm that will improve profitability and help us take steps to reduce our impact on the climate
- Sign up to our mailing list. The mailing list highlights any relevant funding opportunities, farm meetings, new practical guides and farmer case studies (note your email address is just used for the mailing list and we don’t pass data to third parties; you can unsubscribe at any time). You will also get the FFBC newsletter twice a year.
