elm_house_cows_2009_009AHDB Beef & Lamb is the organisation for beef and lamb levy payers in England.

We exist to enhance the profitability and sustainability of the English beef and lamb sector. Our aims are:

  • To help the beef and sheep meat supply chain become more efficient
  • To add value to the beef and sheep meat industry.

AHDB Beef & Lamb is part of the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) along with five other levy organisations:

AHDB is a non-departmental public body (NDPB). That means it operates independently of Government but liaises closely with the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), its sponsor department.

AHDB Beef & Lamb is funded through a statutory levy paid on all beef and sheep animals slaughtered in, or live animals exported from, England. Visit levy rates to find out more about the levy.

As a division of AHDB, AHDB Beef & Lamb does not have a stand-alone annual report. View the full AHDB annual report here.
