I was very fortunate to meet last week with Elfyn Davies. Elfyn is this years Omsco farmer of the year. He runs a beautiful organic farm in Wales. For me, more important then the great products Elfyn produces, are his ideas for the future of farming.
Elfyn is an Organic farmer who constantly writes letters to organic organisations pushing the boundaries of animal welfare. He truly cares for the cows as part of his family. In any business meeting the standard requirements is an obligation, but to be constantly pushing for stricter guidelines that can often reduce financial profit, for the benefit of the cows and the farm is inspirational.
He spoke very emotionally about letting his girls go and how he would love to keep them. Farmers often find themselves in this difficult predicament. If the Go Dharmic campaign is successful in raising awareness and demand for slaughter free products, farmers like Elfyn will be rewarded for their ethical stance, and for compassionate views, not for their ability to maximise production.
