“Limber up for Brexit”

Says Jack Watts, AHDB’s ( Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board), Lead Analyst about Farm Businesses, analysts have encouraged farmers to “find out if their business is braced for Brexit”.  Mr Watts also suggested that “producers in all sectors had to look at the bigger picture for their own business” and “work out their long-term goals, such as hitting a specific profit, supporting a particular lifestyle, or setting up the next generation”.

He also suggested that UK farmers had to shift their perspective: they should worry less about cashflow and more about overall profit, and focus on broader goals, not just year-by-year performance.
