Quote Of The Week

"We do want to move to paying for outcomes, but we are faced with the practical need to get something which works as best it can from the outset. The challenge of finding a payment mechanism which rewards outcomes, some of which are very difficult to measure, particularly on a farm basis, or can only be seen over a number of years, has just proven too challenging in the timescale, but it remains where we want to go."

Gavin Ross, deputy ELMs director at Defra

Brexit Prep Tip

See Brexit as an opportunity to evaluate your business

“Profit as a percentage of turnover is not very widely used, but farmers should be looking to target 15 per cent. At that level they would be able to afford to invest, draw a reasonable living and have a business which is sustainable for the future.”

Mike Houghton, Andersons, speaking at the Dairy Show
