Benchmarking exercises have recently demonstrated input savings, and these range from 5-45% dependent upon product type and product mix, which can translate into savings of £15 - £75 per hectare depending on the type of farming enterprise and region of the country. We have a very strong dairy group which purchases inputs and services for more than 25,000 cows, achieving savings of £40 -£80 per cow.
