Join AHDB Beef & Lamb and independent sheep and beef consultant Dr Liz Genever for a workshop looking at soil and grass management to improve animal performance and farm profitability. The workshop will focus on measuring and monitoring grass growth and quality, and the infrastructure required to improve grazing strategies.

The meeting will be hosted by one of the new GrassCheckGB project farms. Grasscheck was set up to help calculate the variation in grass potential across Great Britain. The project has been running in Northern Ireland for several years, and we’ll discuss their findings so far.
