Many of our farmer members will remember when mixed farming was routinely practiced across the region, but in recent times herds and flocks have not been economically viable for a farm business. However the role of livestock is being revalued to be seen as part of a wider ‘agro-ecology’ to improve soil fertility and weed control. This approach could be a potential model for so-called sustainable intensification.
As the role of livestock within a farming system is re-evaluated, so too are we extending the scope of Agri-Tech East beyond its initial crop and plant-based focus.
