Bio-Gas at Diversifarm - Dairy Event 2007

Bio-gas is just one of the many sources of bio-energy available to livestock farmers that will feature within Diversifarm, a major exhibition covering a comprehensive range of farm diversification activities to be held at the Dairy Event, Stoneleigh Park, Coventry on Wednesday 19 and Thursday 20 September by its organisers the Royal Association of British Dairy Farmers.


Anaerobic Digestion of Food Manufacturing  Wastes and Farm Residues

Diversifarm, which is once again being jointly staged by RABDF and sponsors, the Country Land and Business Association, will provide information on opportunities for anaerobic digestion, as well as cover a broad spectrum of farm diversification activities. Advice and support will be available to enable farmers to find out how to exploit their existing farm assets, such as redundant farm buildings or an area of land to create a new income stream and boost revenue from non-food enterprises.

CLA director north, Douglas Chalmers says: “Anaerobic digestion is a particularly valuable diversification for the dairy sector; it reduces costs, generates a potential new income stream, offers positive effects on climate change and provides waste management benefits.”

RABDF chief executive, Nick Everington adds; “Diversifarm is once again being staged in response to dairy producer’s intentions. Market research carried out at last year’s Dairy Event found that 27% of farmer visitors had already diversified in to areas such as tourism, sports facilities, processing, retailing and office /industrial lets, however more than 34% were planning to do so in future. Diversifarm is designed to offer visitors the chance to examine their existing enterprises, understand the marketplace, determine how they can exploit their resources and then make informed business decisions.”
