Organised by Farmers Guardian and supported by Farmcare, the Business of Farming Conference is a one-day event that brings UK farmers together to inspire, motivate and share solutions to strengthen their businesses.

 

Over registration, delegates spoke about their enthusiasm to hear an open discussion on the stigma of succession planning as well as sessions of professional development, covering negotiation and personal management.

 

Briefing Media’s group head of content Emma Penny said: “We spoke to a lot of farmers to find out what they want to learn about so this conference has been put together to reflect all the things that people have asked for.”

 

Richard Quinn, chief executive of Farmcare, added: “There’s a huge opportunity to restructure what we do and how we do it and we need to take time out to think about how to build a resilient farm business.”

 

The event has been researched with a wide number of farmers, from all sectors and regions, who collectively identified the burning business issues they wanted to learn more about.

 

Solutions

 

Attendees can expect to be offered solutions to common farming problems, fresh ideas to boost efficiency and honest take-home advice that will be provided from a rich selection of inspirational fellow farmers and leading experts from inside and outside of the industry.

 

Taking place at Wootton Park in Warwickshire, it is split into four practical themes including managing succession, raising finance, the art of negotiation and managing yourself.
