Home-grown forage and protein self-sufficiency is key to profitability and sustainability.  AHDB’s Protein and Mixed Forage project explores the potential to replace high cost concentrates with home-grown forage in the finishing phase to reduce feed costs. Initial results show that replacing a significant proportion of cereals with a high energy and protein forage can reduce feed costs whilst retaining high quality finished cattle. Come along to Harper Adams University to learn more about this project, home-grown forage production and the importance of mineral supplementation and auditing in the finishing phase.


This event covers topics including

  • Results from Protein and mixed forage beef trial 1 and the plan for the next steps of the project - Robert Wilkinson, Harper Adams
  • Production of high energy and protein forage - Siwan Howatson, AHDB
  • Mineral audits in finishing cattle - Andrew Schofield, Farm vet
  • Farm Walk
  • Refreshments and finish
