Woodhead Farm is a 180 cow dairy near Newmilns in Ayrshire, owned and run by John Kerr and his family.

The farm covers 141 hectares with access to additional rented land. Cropping is predominantly grass, with 16 ha of wholecrop. There is also 12 ha of farm woodland.

John is keen to do what he can to improve profitability and reduce costs at Woodhead and has volunteered to work with SRUC as a Climate Change Focus Farm. Over the three year initiative, John will explore practical steps to benefit the farm business and reduce the farm carbon footprint.
