Beef and sheep producer James MacCartney farms near Oakham in Rutland – in the East Midlands of England.
It's a 160ha grass-based farm – about 400 acres – and in his quest to become more sustainable, James says he has three key goals:
Improving the grassland, gaining disease free status for his sheep flock – and reducing his carbon footprint so he is better than net zero.
In this episode, we look at the challenges James faces as he strives to meet his goals – and how he hopes to overcome them.
Presented by Johann Tasker with James MacCartney, Ben Wixey of Germinal, beef and sheep consultant Liz Genever and Rebecca Davenport of Rutland Veterinary Centre.
