8.9 Newsweek: Focus on regenerative cattle breeding

Breed is critical to any livestock operation and an active breeding programme helps farmers to develop their herd around particular beneficial traits.

In the run up to the British Cattle Breeders Club conference this January, we’ve been taking an in-depth look at how the traits and characteristics needed for regenerative farming differ from mainstream cattle production.

We’ll hear from three farmers with active on-farm breeding programmes – Sophie Wilson from Starveall Dairy – Silas Hedley Lawrence from FAI Farms – and Phyllis van Amburgh from Dharma Lea in the USA. We also hear from Rob Havard, who runs the breeding farm, Phepson Angus.
