Managing the margin squeeze…

Managing the margin squeeze…

… is the theme of this year's Joint Venture Farming Group (JVFG) conference, which is due to take place on Feb 10th at the Greetham Valley Golf Club, near Oakham, Rutland. Focusing on the challenging future for farming, the conference looks at the global economic situation and how farm businesses can combat the combined threats of mounting production costs, restricted credit and increased working capital requirements. True to the group's core principles, the event should be of particular interest to farmers who are contemplating joining up with others to spread their labour/machinery overhead over a larger area. JVFG chairman and Northants farmer Charles Matts says: "With production costs squeezing arable margins into the red, managing the margin has never been more important." Conference speakers include Mark Berrisford-Smith (HSBC's senior economist), Gary Markham (Grant Thornton), Jamie Gwatkin (JVFG consultant), Mark Tucker (Yara UK), Antony Pearce (Manor Farm LLP, a joint venture group in Bucks) and Gary Naylor (Worth Farms Ltd, Lincs). The day will be chaired by Steve Ellwood, the chairman of EFFP (English Food and Farming Partnerships). To book a place, visit www.jvfg.co.uk
