Webinar: Beef from Grass project findings – developing efficient beef systems

Past Event

Tue, 24 March 2020

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM


Join AHDB Beef and Lamb and Marc Jones, from ADAS, for a webinar discussing the findings of the beef from grass project.

There is a growing interest to graze cattle for more days, to gain more weight from grass and to understand the potential benefit of rotational grazing. The potential of grass and grazed forages in relation to growth rates for beef cattle is well-known but there is also potential for improvement on beef farms.

The project aimed to develop efficient grazing systems for beef producers. During the project, we worked with four beef producers over a two-year period to improve their grazing management In turn, producers saw costs of production decrease and the kg of liveweight produced per hectare increase.

The webinar will cover:

  • Overview of the project
  • Case studies from farmers who took part
  • Key performance indicators related to grassland management
  • Top tips for managing cattle in a rotational grazing system

 The webinar will last approximately 60 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.
