Michael Griffiths (centre) was one of the three winners of a Hewlett Packard Celeron 900 computer and NMRs Interpremium Plus livestock software worth £2500 in the recent farmers weekly/Merial Ivomec competition. Mr Griffiths runs a 110-head beef herd, 220 breeding ewes and grows 80 acres of cereals at 100ha (250-acre) Swainshill Farm, near Hereford. He has not had a computer until now, he says, but was seriously thinking of buying one to simplify record-keeping. Also in the picture are Cristan Soper, territory manager for Merial in that area and Peter Wooldridge from NMR. The other winners were Gordon McFarland, Newtonstewart, Co Tyrone, Northern Ireland and J & DR Rutter, Thropton, Morpeth, Northumberland.
