The Dimings Leader case study.
This small sheep farm has grown and expanded over the past 15 years. The project will enable the business to develop through the use of technology and improving animal welfare. Purchase of a mobile sheep handling system and an EID Stick Reader will bring in new technology and assist with the traceability, breeding and productivity of the flock.
Funding is required to help improve and grow the business enabling them to record the stock and manage the breeding programme efficiently. Without funding the project would take a lot longer to implement.
