Volac is delighted to be backing the Year of the Family Farm initiative. Family farms are a vital part of the fabric of rural life and we are privileged to have enjoyed such a long-standing relationship with many. Like many of the farms we support, ours is a family-owned business with a proud heritage and strong core values.
But for us both to thrive we need a vibrant and productive UK livestock farming sector, which is why our product and support programmes remain firmly focused on helping family enterprises become more productive and sustainable.
Family farms face many challenges, but this initiative will highlight many of the key issues that must be addressed in order to remain competitive in the modern, technology-based farming world. It will also provide valuable guidance on the way forward and we applaud its motives.
