The Ruby Country Net-Zero Beef Farming Forum have released their final report, exploring how beef farming in the Ruby Country can transition to net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 at the latest.

The report is the result of work between farmers and experts from agricultural research institute, Rothamsted Research, and the University of Exeter.

It highlights practical and financial barriers for beef farmers who want to reduce their carbon footprints and capture more carbon on their farms. It also identifies how farmers can be supported to transition to net-zero e.g. tailoring support to the individual farm and local circumstances, a clear policy framework, routes to market, a recognition of farmers’ financial circumstances within environmental policy and making the science behind the transition more accessible.

The culmination of this report is a great example of different communities coming together to take climate action in Devon. The recommendations will form part of the evidence for the new Devon Carbon Plan, which outlines Devon’s path to becoming net-zero carbon by 2050 at the latest.

The full report is available to read here.
