Do the economics of using a contractor stack up?

Contractors play a vital role on many arable farms. They can supply an essential labour resource, supplementing farm staff. They can also bring in high capital cost, innovative machinery, which is becoming increasingly difficult to justify on farm, particularly for seasonal or specialist operations. 

It is crucial for contractors to work in close partnership with customers to ensure they can supply a high-quality, safe service, helping to increase productivity, whilst protecting the soil, water and surrounding biodiversity, to drive forward farm profitability whilst allowing all partners to thrive.

This seminar will help you assess if your business could benefit working with a contractor, answering the key questions you need to consider.
