Grow More – Graze More – Earn More - Somerset

When: February 21st 2018 10:45 to 14:30
Location: BA3 4UL

Take your paddock grazing management to the next level!

Are you ready to set yourself a challenge for 2018?

Grazed grass is our cheapest feed at 1/3 of the cost of concentrates, so getting your rotational grazing system right is key to keeping costs down and profit up.

Grazing based dairy farms should be striving for at least 4000 litres of milk from forage. Join AHDB Dairy and Grasstec’s grazing consultant Dr Noel Gowen, to find out how you can achieve this

What will be covered:

  • Reminder of why grazing at the 3 leaf stage allows you to grow up to 55% more grass
  • Why regularly measuring grass helps increase grass utilisation
  • How to get out early and stay out late using tracks, gateways and on/off strategies
  • Using Agrinet to budget for the shortfalls and excesses throughout the year

Who should attend? Farmers/managers looking to improve their grazing strategy and maximise milk from forage.
