Grassland Management

Grazed grass is the cheapest feed on most British dairy farms yet it is also the most poorly utilised. Whether grazed or fed silage, grass provides over half the dry matter intake of most dairy cows. This means small improvements in utilisation can have a major impact on production costs. Milk producers can have as much control over what their cows eat in the grazing season as they do when they are housed. This is what AHDB Dairy grass+ sets out to achieve.
