Defra would like to hear from smallholders about livestock issues

Do you keep livestock? Would you like to share your views? Defra is interested in understanding the issues for smallholders and hobby farmers keeping animals. It is organising focus groups, run by independent academics, and is looking for people to be part of groups of 6-9 people. The discussions in the groups will be summarised to help Defra provide better advice and support to smallholders and hobby farmers. The first focus group will be held in York on the 10th of February 12-2.30. Lunch will be provided and reasonable travel expenses paid. Defra said: “We’d like to have a broad range of views so if you would like to be part of the group please contact by January 22nd. If you can’t attend that time or place but would like to be involved let us know as we will be organising other groups across the country.”
