Study tour to Scotland

Welsh organic farmers have requested that OCW organise a study tour of a number of progressive organic Scottish beef and sheep farms that have been working with the SAC sheep specialist John Vipond. These farmers have been able to increase their flock size through selecting for easy care traits and have improved their stocking rates by improving forage management. The proposed tour schedule is: leaving Wales on Tuesday 12th October and returning on Friday the 15th. The four farm visits will be facilitated by John Vipond and a visit to the organic unit of Newcastle University is planned for the return journey.

Estimated cost per person will be £150, subsidised by the BOBL project. There are only 15 places available and expressions of interest are required immediately so that the arrangements can be confirmed by Friday 1st October 2010. Please contact on 01970 622100.
