John Yeomans from Newtown, Powys, will visit Northern Ireland, Finland and Germany
John Yeomans is a beef and sheep farmer from Newtown. John hopes to visit Northern Ireland, Finland and Germany during his exchange visit to expand his knowledge about grassland management and carcase classification.
His aim is to learn about better utilisation of grass and more targeted use of inputs in order to reduce bought in feed. Learning more about alternative grassland management strategies will enable him to determine which methods could be used on his own farm.
John believes that reviewing carcase classification progression in Ireland, the UK and Germany would help to move things forward in Wales towards a yield based payment system.
