This Climate Change Focus Farm meeting at Nether Aden will give a farm update and look at the use of new technology to improve farm efficiencies.
The meeting will focus on new technology in both livestock and arable farming, examining the current opportunities and the potential for the future.

The majority of this meeting will be held outdoors. Please wear suitable clothing and footwear.
David and Nicola Barron run Nether Aden farm, a mixed unit in Aberdeenshire. The farm covers 208 hectares where David rears and finishes 110 suckler cows.
Crops at Nether Aden include spring and winter barley, whole crop, winter wheat, winter oilseed rape plus grazing and silage ground. David has also made use of shelterbelts.
David and Nicola have volunteered to work a Climate Change Focus Farm within the Farming For A Better Climate project. Funded by the Scottish Government and supported by NFUS, the three year focus farm programme of events could help you reduce energy bills, realise the potential for renewables, improve grassland and farm soils and optimise nutrient use. The programme of free meetings will have an arable, beef and grassland focus, however all farmers are welcome to attend.
If you want to know more about the programme, or would like to join the group but cannot attend this meeting, please contact Alan Bruce on 01888 563333 or email email@example.com
