The second Northern Ireland Sheep Programme webinar took place last Thursday night and featured the Davidson farm, located between Cookstown and Dungannon. The farm is operated on a full-time basis, with Mark aided by his wife Jenny and children Harry (15), Ellie (13) and Jonah (10).

Mark took over the running of the farm six years ago and has since focused on building stock numbers, improving grassland performance and tweaking the breeding system. He says he is lucky with the layout of the farm, which consists of 57.7ha (113ac) located in one block and an out-farm of 12ha (30ac) located a short distance from the main block.
