A group of 30 dairy farming businesses which has been going for over 30 years, situated in the north Wiltshire area.  The group runs benchmarking meetings during the year, including financial, forage quality, mastitis, lameness and fertility data.  The group has an excellent reputation and attracts good quality speakers.  We try to run interactive meetings.  We also run a number of farm walks and trips during the year and at least two of our meetings every year are farm project based. 


We also have a Facebook page – Calne Dairy Discussion Group
