New Buildings Farm Leader case study.
The funding provided installation of LED Lighting and improvements to the supply at a new farm. This enabled redundant cattle sheds to be made into a high animal welfare unit to be used for rearing heifers on a contract basis. The rearing unit provides a service to dairy and beef farms in the area and further afield allowing them to contract rear their heifers and help grow their own businesses.
