MAXIMISE the benefit of the scheme to your farm business, the wildlife on your farm and your shoot by finding out about the new Countryside Stewardship Offers at a course being held by the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust.

The course will take place at the Allerton Project on February 27th which will look into the four new offers introduced by Defra yesterday for farmers and land managers to boost biodiversity and help protect and enhance farmland and the countryside. These include Online Arable Offer, Lowland Grazing Offer, Upland Offer and Mixed Farming Offer, all of which have been welcomed by GWCT and will provide tailored options covering the full range of different farm types.

Run by the Allerton Project team, with valuable input from Kings, the course will also allow farmers to look at scheme options in practice, from positioning, choosing the seed mix, establishing the option and option management.

This will be followed by a guide on how to complete the application process.

Head of development and training at the Allerton Project Jim Egan said: “This course offers a fantastic opportunity to be briefed by experts in both the Countryside Stewardship Application Process and management of options to ensure you can maximise the benefit of the scheme to your farm business and your shoot.”

“Following attendance on the course, there will be an exclusive opportunity to book yourself bespoke follow-up advice to help ensure your application has the best chance of success.”

The course will cost £145, including lunch and refreshments, with just 20 places available.
