These producers can access a one-hour surgery with a consultant to discuss their individual benchmarking report and/or a two-hour, on-farm clinic with a business adviser to discuss how to increase outputs and improve efficiency.

All clinics and surgeries will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis, with applications closing on 31 January 2020.
