An open day took place on the farm of the Kildalton Open Source Sustainable Dairy Demonstration Farm on Thursday, 5 July. At this open day attendees heard how Kildalton have achieved a more sustainable farming enterprise while at the same time reducing costs and improving profits. The Kildalton Open Source Sustainable Demonstration Farm won’t develop an exact blueprint that every farm should adopt to become more sustainable but it has set about to explore the effectiveness of a range of practical measures and technologies and establish their effectiveness in a more real-life dairy farming system. This booklet contains a wealth of information on every aspect of sustainable farming and aims to pick out those strategies that will underpin your transition to improving the sustainability on your farm. Getting these right not only improves farm finances but will also improve the effectiveness of future decisions and strategies to keep improving farm sustainability.
