David and Nicola Barron run Nether Aden farm, a mixed unit in Aberdeenshire. The farm covers 208 hectares where David rears and finishes 110 suckler cows.

Crops at Nether Aden include spring and winter barley, whole crop, winter wheat, winter oilseed rape plus grazing and silage ground. David has also made use of shelterbelts.

David and Nicola have volunteered to work with SRUC as a Climate Change Focus Farm. Over the three year initiative, David and Nicola will look at practical measures that suit Nether Aden, improve farm efficiency and reduce the farm carbon footprint.

Reducing the farm carbon footprint can save you money. A series of on-farm meetings looking at practical ways to improve production are underway at Nether Aden; they are free to attend and all farmers are welcome.
