Winter Newsletter 2023

As the nights are drawing in and Winter is well and truly upon us, it is a good time to reflect on the year just been and start ‘planting the seeds’ for a successful 2024. We invite you to take a little well-deserved break, make yourself a nice warm cuppa and enjoy some of our latest news and tips to help you keep on top of your farm management in the year ahead.

How to Reduce Farm Admin in 2024

Look­ing For a Cat­tle Man­age­ment System?

As Farm­plan are stop­ping sup­port of their live­stock soft­ware Cat­tle Man­ag­er’, we know many farm­ers are on the hunt for a good replace­ment.

If you know of any cat­tle farm­ers look­ing for a suit­able replace­ment, we believe SUM-IT’s Total Beef is the best & clos­est replace­ment on the mar­ket.

Not only this, but we are offer­ing all cur­rent users of Farmplan’s Cat­tle Man­ag­er a spe­cial 30% off Total Beef, plus free herd set-up.

If you pass this offer on to any live­stock farm­ers you know, your sup­port bill will be reduced by £50 as a thank you! We have put togeth­er this handy leaflet, so feel free to pass on.

4 Things To Look For­ward To In 2024!
