Event Information

Driver's for Margin Roadshow Invite

Only 16% of UK dairy farms are safely making enough margin to be sustainable*.

Join us at a series of meetings to discuss what the key Drivers for Margin are and how the top net-margin farms achieve their results.

We will be travelling up and down the UK and hope you can join us along the way. To find out dates and venues please see the table below.

The following topics will be discussed at the meetings:

  • Key drivers for unlocking your herds genetic potential
  • Economics of the average and top margin farms. What drives the farms that achieve the top margins…it’s not milk price!
  • Using genomics to drive genetic potential – Guest speaker Richard Miller from NMR
  • Maximising milk price through milk composition and lowering SCC
  • Target 24 - Age at first calving. This stubbornly sits still at 28 months nationally and costs the average producer over a penny a litre in true cost.
  • Achieving low feed costs per litre – Driving Home Grown forage’s potential.

There will be plenty of opportunity for discussion time and one to one discussions. We guarantee that you will take home valuable challenges for your own business.

Confirmed Speakers

  • James Hague, ForFarmers
  • Richard Miller, NMR Genomics Manager
  • Dr Hazel Wright, F.U.W - Senior Policy Officer  (Only speaking at Oriel House Hotel)


Depending on the time of the event, a complimentary lunch or dinner will be provided. The event is free but for catering purposes please register your attendance in the form below.
