Red Meat Benchmarking Programme Deadline Approaching
The Red Meat Benchmarking Programme deadline is fast approaching and we encourage you to complete the online questionnaire as soon as possible, or you could miss out on £1,000. This is the message from Eirwen Williams, director of rural programmes with Menter a Busnes, who delivers Farming Connect:
“The Red Meat Benchmarking Programme was launched by Hybu Cig Cymru on the 8th of October, and eligible businesses have until the 10th of December to complete the online questionnaire.
“But before you begin, you must meet specific eligibility criteria, including registering your business with Farming Connect. You must be registered in order to gain access to the system and begin recording your data.
“It is important to note that the Farming Connect Service Centre is not open at weekends, so you must begin the process immediately to avoid any potential barriers such as difficulties logging in. We urge you not to leave it until the last minute.
“If you are not registered or need help logging into the questionnaire, contact the Farming Connect Service Centre on 08456 000813 or e-mail: [email protected]
“Red Meat Benchmarking is your opportunity to gain a better understanding of how your business is performing and help to create a strong and confident red meat sector for future generations.
“It is available to 2,000 businesses who keep sheep and suckler cows, but please ensure that you are aware of the number of animals needed to be able to participate. Remember also that participation is on a first come, first served basis. You will need to complete an online questionnaire in order to submit financial and physical details about your farm.”
