Since involving the next generation on the farm (the daughter and son-in-law are now in the partnership), we have now changed most of our suppliers, with some amazing cost savings.

This started with the accountant, the current one is cheaper, but has yet to prove he is more efficient. Then we changed milk recording from National Milk Records to Cattle Information Service. The other end of the table is delighted with this move, as it provides so much more information for her breeding programme, fractionally cheaper.
