​​Key areas you wish to focus on as a demonstration farmer?

Sheep health: to investigate what environmental or genetic factors are influential in the incidence of lameness in lambs.

Carbon footprint: we have already integrated renewables into the business and would like to explore ways of further improving our carbon footprint.

Alternative to bedding: with a view to improving flock health we would like to trial different bedding surfaces.

Utilising new technologies to improve flock health through gathering and analysing data on growth rates, animal temperature and water intake.
