    Anyone for FREE farm business or technical advice?

How would you like to get some expert technical or business advice, tailored for your farm situation, for free?

The Milk Development Council (MDC) is looking for dairy farmers across the southwest to host open days and events on their farms - and receive free advice in return. Events can be on any subject from tackling lameness in the dairy herd to business planning for the future.

"It's a chance to get some expert advice for free and pick the brains of your fellow dairy farmers," explain Piers Badnell, MDC Extension Officer in the South West. "With technical experts visiting your business the advice will be very relevant to your particular farm situation. A farm event can help you tackle a specific technical or business problem and can highlight some great opportunities and ways for your business to move forwards.

"All you have to do is open the farm for discussion and let the experts work their magic," he explains.

If you would be interested in hosting an MDC event and have a particular problem or issue you think could use some advice contact Piers Badnell on 01989 740562, email, or contact Anne Smith at the MDC on 01285 646500 or email
