Owen Farm Services is a member of the 5|Agri Group.
5|Agri is an alliance of agricultural consultants, who are a group of like-minded people with over 100 years of consulting and advisory experience. These 5|Agri members are regionally based and can therefore cover a large part of the UK. The co-founders of 5|Agri also participated in the creation of the Agri Ignite tool platform. It was created to help farmers become more efficient through the use of technology. Currently, 5|Agri works with AHDB to provide agricultural business reviews to farmers in England. These reviews, funded by DEFRA, aim to help farmers understand the changes to the basic payment scheme.
If you are based in England and would like to take advantage of this service, please contact us.
For those who missed this online webinar, there is another opportunity to watch “AHDB Dairy: Potstown Strategic Dairy Farm Launch” by following the link below.
This webinar has been created to celebrate the launch of AHDB’s new strategic Scottish dairy farm calving all year round, located at Potstown Farm (where our office is based).
In this webinar, Gareth and David Owen offer a virtual tour of their farm and provide insight into its background, operations and the team involved. This video contains an overview of the farm’s technical performance against key performance indicators (KPIs) of the optimal dairy system and details on their long-term vision for the business.
Gareth and David also take a critical look at areas that have been identified for improvement over the next few years.
This includes exploring opportunities for expansion and maximizing cow and heifer performance by examining:
• Housing for young animals
• Calf health
• Improve fertility
• Improve mobility within the herd
• Maximize the use of genetics
• Maximize forage
