Beef Farmer of the Year 2018
I'm Andrew Laughton a beef farmer from Louth in Lincolnshire. We fatten around 5000 cattle a year in outdoor straw bedded yards using a TMR (total mixed ration) system utilising bi products and coproducts. We have several "muck for straw" arrangements with local arable farmers. Until recently I chaired the National Beef Association and was lucky enough to be named Farmers Weekly Beef Farmer of the year in 2018.
