Next Forum: Tuesday 14th December 2021
The South of England Agricultural Society has launched a new series of regular Technical Forums targeted at active farmers and growers across the region. The free-to-attend webinars will tackle a broad range of issues with the aim to push the boundaries of our thinking.
The next Technical Forum titled ‘It’s All About People’ is scheduled to take place online on Tuesday 14th December from 6-7pm and will feature Tom Rawson, Director of Evolution Farming as the guest speaker.
Tom is the founding Director of Evolution Farming, a progressive dairy farming business milking over 3,000 cows across 9 sites together with a large contracting business. Tom recognised a number of years ago that his business was no longer about managing cows, but all about managing people. With over 50 employees Evolution has worked hard to build a community feel across the business, providing opportunities for people to thrive and progress. There have been challenges of course, but overall recruitment has not been that much of an issue – bucking the industry trend.
Whether you are a dairy farmer or operating in another sector, there is much to learn from Tom and how he transitioned from being a business about cows, to one that puts people first and foremost.
The Technical Forums are held by the South of England Agricultural Society as part of its charitable remit to fund and support agricultural education and countryside learning.
