Benchmarking for Beef & Lamb Farmers

January 6, 2023

With rises in feed, fertiliser, and fuel costs, knowing your cost of production and how your farm enterprises compare with industry is now more important than ever. AHDB Beef and Lamb can help with their Farmbench project!

What is involved?

  1. An AHDB Regional Knowledge Exchange Manager will visit the farm, collect the information required for Farmbench, and upload it.
  2. Once the data is uploaded you will receive a detailed report which will highlight the strengths and weaknesses of your business compared to similar operations in the country.
  3. This enables AHDB to provide cost of production reports which will help inform farmers and influence industry decisions.

For more information or to take part in the project, contact AHDB Knowledge Exchange Manager, Meg Spendlove (
