Benefits Are There For The Taking

The cushion of subsidies may have been taken away but livestock producers are now market focused and the benefit is real returns for good efficient production.

That's the view of Clare Wise, on-farm project manager for the Red Meat Industry Forum (RMIF), speaking at the Women's Farming Union (WFU) conference in Stratford-upon-Avon on March 31.

Things are starting to look up and this is down to two factors - consumption is forecast to continue increasing and the lifting of the beef export restrictions will strengthen the market for the right products.

Clare said: "Though there is a new world out there, farmers must be efficient when it comes to production or they will lose out.

"This is where the RMIF can help. It is vital to know costs of production in detail because then any opportunities to improve the business can be spotted.

"From there, the next step is to identify how to capitalise on those opportunities and RMIF together with EBLEX and BPEX can guide farmers to the solutions.

"We offer practical help to farmers wanting to change, wanting to improve their businesses, wanting to build a future for their businesses and future generations.

"We are starting from a strong economic position, now it's up to us to build a farming industry for the future. Producers must understand the supply chain and provide what it needs. Then they can be sure of getting a good return."
