DairyCo at Livestock Event

Published 25 June 14

This year’s interactive BGS Forage Field at the Livestock Event on 2 and 3 July at the NEC, Birmingham, focuses on seven key steps for successful forage management. Here you can learn about the latest developments in growing, measuring, protecting and ensiling grass and forage. DairyCo will be joining technical experts from the British Grassland Society, Germinal Seeds, Dow Agrosciences, Lallemand and Volac to answer any forage-related queries you may have.

The stand will cover:

  1. Soil health – is your soil fit for purpose?
  2. Reseeding vs. overseeding – options for new leys
  3. Weeds out, grass in – getting in control of your weeds
  4. Getting more from grazed grass
  5. Maximising clamp silage value
  6. Improving baled silage
  7. How quality forage drives profit in all systems.

On the DairyCo stand this year you will have the opportunity to chat with some of our levy ambassadors who have been working closely with DairyCo. On Wednesday, Hugh McClymont, Dairy Farmer of the Year Award 2013 winner will be available to discuss the difference winning an award makes to your business. Also Janette Prince, organic dairy farmer and DairyCo Board member will be talking about her work engaging consumers. On Thursday, dairy farmer Jim Franklin, a keen advocate of social media, will be pleased to share his experience.

Please check on the day for exact timings.
