Grazing Review Workshop – planning for 2019

Start the 2019 grazing season off on the right foot by joining AHDB and LIC grazing consultant, Sean Chubb, for a workshop looking at effective grass monitoring and budgeting. The 2018 grazing season was challenging, with some farms reporting grass yields down by up to 4t DM/ha. This workshop will review 2018 and discuss strategies for early turnout to increase utilisation, including:

  • Learning how your technical grazing performance affects cash flow
  • Lessons learned from 2018’s extreme weather
  • How to set realistic targets for 2019
  • What needs to be in wet and dry management plans
  • How to set utilisation targets

The workshop is for those who work with a plate meter and paddock rotational grazing.                                                

Date:           Tuesday 22January 2019
