UK - The pig, beef, lamb and dairy sectors are joining forces for a series of one-day management training sessions in Yorkshire, starting next week.

The skills to manage time and negotiate effectively are essential to running a productive and profitable livestock business. Organised by AHDB divisions EBLEX, BPEX and DairyCo, the interactive workshops will help farm managers improve their business performance while developing their time management and negotiation skills. Plus, it is an opportunity to meet and share experience with other livestock producers from different sectors which can generate new ideas and provide a fresh perspective.

The first two workshops take place on 17 November in Darrington, West Yorkshire, and 23 November in Pocklington, East Yorkshire. For a full list of dates and to book a place contact Hellen Tordoff: 0870 609 1840 or [email protected]. The price for a one-day workshop is 325.

This course is funded as part of the Rural Development Programme for England (RDPE) which is funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and DEFRA.
