Sourcing Borrowing Farming Note

Finance costs account for 0.6ppl or £43 per cow of total farm costs, according to results from herds using Kingshay Full Costs service (ranging from virtually nothing to 2.9ppl). Reinvestment is vital for a thriving business. A large proportion of farm infrastructure was installed in the 70's and 80's and needs replacing. With today's milk price, room for reinvestment is limited so it is important to secure borrowing from the most cost effective source. This Farming Note evaluates the options for borrowing.

Issued April 2007.

This Farming Note is only available to members
