The Impact!

A carbon audit was completed to determine CO2 emissions from the farm. Mitigating measures were implemented – the results of which will be demonstrated at this event. This is part of an ongoing journey – we invite you to follow us on our journey to Net Zero!

Reducing Feed Waste: One of the most significant outlays at Lodge Farm is feed costs particularly feed waste. Myerscough College commissioned a Feed Waste Audit with Alltech which enabled further understanding of the value of underutilised feed inputs. This then enabled us to agree on achievable targets, define clear actions to meet these targets, and understand the return on investment for these action points. Bob Kendal, North Region Sales Manager, Alltech

A Carbon Consultation provided by ECO2 analysed the problematic areas of the carbon audit and provided solutions for us to respond to and reduce Myerscough Farms’ carbon footprint as efficiently as possible. Will Streatfield ECO2 Carbon Consultation.

Halal – Dispelling the myths and exploring the market (Penrith)

Join AHDB and farmers Matt and Dani Blair who run Thrimby Hall Farm in The Lake District for an event which aims to help you understand more about the Halal market and its growing importance to the lamb sector.

Her current role at AHDB focuses on understanding the performance and trends in retail and foodservice markets and communicating opportunities for AHDB levy payers.

Dr Awal Fuseini will talk about what Halal means along with how and why lamb is such an important part of the Muslim communities’ dietary requirements. He will dispel some of the myths around how the sector operates, giving confidence to farmers who want to capitalise on this growing market. Awal works closely with levy payers and key stakeholders in the Halal sector to create a better understanding of the requirements of Halal meat production. His role involves introducing various initiatives aimed at promoting English beef and lamb as versatile and convenient products to Halal consumers.

Dr Gulam Khan will give an insight into how the Muslim communities perceive lamb production in England and how we can better market lambs throughout different times of the Muslim year.

Martin Eccles will cut a lamb to Halal specification demonstrating what the Halal market requires. Martin is a butcher with 35 years’ experience and has a strong understanding across all species to improve carcase utilisation, knowledge transfer and consumer satisfaction.
