Farmplan will supply the laptop computers and provide the software and training to 700 Farm Connections producers who supply cattle through ABP for Sainsbury

Sainsbury’s £1m funding means that the whole package, which includes Farmplan’s Cattle Manager recording and management program, will be free to the participating farmers for around a year. After that the farmers will be able to buy their laptop for around £100.

It is hoped the scheme will help Sainsbury’s farmers operate and compete professionally in the market and access beef supply chain information.

The scheme will also connect the producers to the internet and email network, improving the business’ access to a huge range of information, services and products

Rebecca Timmis of ABP said: “We chose Farmplan because they offered a one-stop-shop for the computers, software and support.

“The company also has a strong track record of delivery and expertise in this area and its software is tried and tested.

” Piers Costley, Farmplan’s manager for the project, said: “The quality of the support we can offer will be crucial in the successful delivery of this project
