Focus on grassland management: Canterbury
Feed is a major cost of keeping a suckler cow and has a huge impact on fertility, calving ease and calf performance. The cheapest form of feed available to livestock farmers is grass. It is estimated that we waste 30% of the grass we grow. Since becoming a Strategic farm, E.H Holdstock & Son have introduced new grassland leys through reseeding and are keen to explore rotational grazing in 2019.
This event will be an opportunity to learn:
- Basic principles of good grassland management
- Options for improving existing grassland leys
- The principles rotational grazing – setting up, stocking rates, sward heights
The event will be interactive with plenty of opportunities to ask questions.
It will also be a great opportunity to hear and discuss the changes that the family have made to their business over the year and a half and capture anything that you may be able to apply to your own business.
