Peter and his team at the family-run partnership Lewis Brothers have been with us right from the start, producing milk for Meadow Foods for more than 20 years.
“The main challenge for dairy farming is the volatility of the milk price,” says Peter. “We’re not a factory that you can just turn ‘on’ or ‘off’; we’re dealing with animals.
A key improvement process that has been initiated at the farm as part of our partnership is facilities to individually test all of the cows – to pin point a problem, if appropriate, and to correct it. “This helps us to improve and keep learning at the same time.”
