Contract farming is all about spreading your overheads and controlling your costs , to therefore make a profit when times are difficult . We use our own base station to provide us with a repeatable GPS signal which gives us RTK accurate drilling , spraying and fertilizer spreading therefore making the most of the imputs and not wasting anything on overlaps
Alot of grain that we produce goes to feed the chickens so reducing road miles and also keeping control of our feed and increasing our income
As well as our own land and some FBT land we also contract farm
We farm with seven different farm business’s in this way covering 810 hectares of land or about 1800 football pitches !
So in total we farm about 1390 hectares
