Why Eurig would be an effective mentor

  • Eurig is part of a growing family farm and his father has given him the opportunity to develop the business. Under the Young Entrants Support Scheme, the head of holding has now passed on to Eurig and the farm has undergone a significant programme of expansion
  • The developments included the installation of major infrastructure for long term profitable milk production. Cow numbers were also increased, but Eurig’s main goal to ensure the business was profitable remained the same
  • Being a Farming Connect demonstration farm gave the family access to expert advice from leading agricultural consultants and sector specialists, which Eurig took on board to enhance the farm enterprise and his farm management skills
  • Eurig is always open to new ideas and new technology and is willing to listen to and learn from others
  • Eurig can provide support on the new agricultural pollution regulations.
