A free event for livestock and arable farmers to see field and silage cutting demonstrations, listen to presentations on technical topics and talk to industry experts on subjects including alternative fuels, producing the best forage, cutting carbon and clean water.
HELPING FARMERS TO MEET NET ZERO TARGETS REDUCING FARM EMISSIONS AND CARBON. INTRODUCING INNOVATIVE EQUIPMENT.
What impact does your farm business have on climate change? What measures can be put in place to mitigate your carbon output? Are you considering a more regenerative farming system with a holistic approach but don’t know which way to turn?
All these questions and many more will be answered at the Farming: Clean, Lean, Green event being organised by Anglia Rural Consultants on Wednesday 11th May at the University of Cambridge’s Park Farm at Madingley, supported by HSBC and Volac.
An informative event is being organised with high profile speakers from Cambridge University, Map of Ag, Gentle Farming and Felixstowe Hydro cycle project, who will discuss how farmers can improve systems by adopting high tech innovation, explore environmental and resource management case studies as well as managing clean resources.
Subject to the weather, there will be working field demonstrations of silage production using the well-researched additive, Ecosyl, and machinery powered by alternative energy sources. All-electric all-terrain and utility vehicles can be test driven and specialists in the design, construction and installation of AD plants, crop
stores, controllers, refrigeration equipment, clean water irrigation and energy saving solutions will be on hand to offer expert advice.
Host for the event is Paul Kelly, Cambridge University’s Farm Manager who commented ‘Following the success of the 2021 event, we are delighted to be holding such an innovative and hands-on event at Madingley once again. The site stretches across 692 ha and includes state of the art technology including an anaerobic digester, robotic milking arms and robotic silage pusher used to provide a teaching resource to the Department of Veterinary Medicine.'
At the event, there will be:
·State of the art machinery and vehicle demonstrations powered by methane, hydrogen or electric including a static display of the New Holland T6.180 Methane tractor, winner of the 2022 sustainable tractor of the year.
·Working demonstrations of the silage harvest from the field to clamp
·Talks will be themed on Improving high tech innovation in agriculture; environmental and resource management and reviewing clean resources on farm
·Exhibitors who have the equipment, knowledge and skills to help farmers meet the new regulations
·Test drive the latest EPV’s on the market
·Expert advice and support to help you wherever you are in the country and type of farm business
