Making a difference

Over the last three years, 750 farmers have been involved in field labs.

  • Field labs have covered 35 topics, from reducing antibiotic use in dairy to methods to control blackgrass.
  • Nine out of 10 farmers said they’d learned from taking part in field labs.
  • More than half of farmers who’ve been part of the network have been inspired to make changes on their farm.

I learnt practical research skills which inspired and gave me confidence to apply for a new field lab to explore the use of observation techniques to improve animal health.
