The recipient of this year’s prestigious Scotch Beef Farm of the Year award is Drumbreddan Livestock Farm in Ardwell, Stranraer; Lamont, Daniel and Sally Hair run the efficient business and have created a unique system that generates cash flow throughout the entire year. Their ‘20/10 system’ involves their bulls being housed with their cows over three fifty-day periods throughout the year. This provides three calving periods in the year and results in healthy profits and more efficient use of their farm’s facilities.
