Janet Dwyer is currently working with CCRI Associate, Allan Butler, from the Royal Agricultural University, to provide an economic analysis and project evaluation of the ‘Molland Graze the Moor' project in Exmoor for the Heather Trust.

The Graze the Moor project seeks to monitor the impact of changes to the grazing regime, that includes the re-introduction of winter grazing on the moor by cattle. The aim is to test whether keeping hardy cattle on the moor over winter can bring benefits to biodiversity and be economically viable as a farm enterprise. The project runs from 2016 to 2019.
