The Young Farmers’ Clubs of Ulster, with the support of Danske Bank, will be holding a land mobility roadshow event this Thursday (February 15th) evening at 8pm at CAFRE’s Greenmount campus with guest speakers Michael Haverty, senior agricultural economist, and Oliver Hall, senior farm business consultant from Andersons Farm Business Consultants.
The leading consultancy firm who are based all over the UK each year advise around 2,000 farmers to help them maximise profitability and achieve their goals.
The YFCU event will provide farmers and farming families with important information on land mobility, succession planning, taxation and farm business strategies. Each event will be chaired by the YFCU and UFU land mobility manager, John McCallister who will deliver a presentation on land mobility and answer any questions that attendees may have.
Danske Bank’s Agri Manager for the region, Seamus McCormick will also provide support and advice on business planning and requirements to secure financial support from the bank.
The events form part of the Danske Advantage series of events, bringing together business experts and leaders to share and discuss their views on various business sectors and themes.
Robert McCullough, head of agribusiness at Danske Bank commented: “As the business of farming evolves to maximise the opportunities ahead, it is crucial that a focused land mobility programme delivers real results. If we have the right people with the right skills working with ambition and making best use of science, innovation and technology, we will be able to optimise our land assets. Ultimately, that will benefit both the landowner and the industry.”
James Speers, YFCU president added: “The Land Mobility Roadshow is happening at a crucial time for our industry and will provide farmers and their families with a huge opportunity to be better informed on land mobility so they can plan and design the future they would like to see for themselves and their families in agriculture. I would like to thank Danske Bank for their continued support of the organisation.”
