Join AHDB Beef and Lamb and Dr Liz Genever, independent beef consultant, for a webinar on finishing cattle at grass.

The webinar will be suitable for beef and dairy farmers who grow and finish cattle at grass – there will be advice on dealing with pasture quality and quantity to ensure performance is maintained throughout the summer.

Across the whole season, growth rates of around 1 kg are achievable at grass, depending on stock type, pasture quality and length of grazing season. Good grazing management can reduce cost of production through lower feed costs, improved growth rates and a longer grazing season and lead to higher stocking rates.

The webinar will cover:

  • Performance targets
  • How to calculate supply and demand
  • Grazing strategies, including leader-follower, mob and techno grazing systems
  • Options to deal with pasture quality and quantity issues

 

The webinar will last approximately 35 minutes, with time for questions at the end.

If you can’t make the webinar, please still register, as it will be recorded and sent to you afterwards to watch in your own time.
