Weekly update

Average daily growth rates are down slightly, by 4.9 kg DM/ha, to 74.4 kg DM/ha, across Forage for Knowledge (FFK) contributor farms, ahead of the long-term average for July, 52.3 kg DM/ha. A big variation across regions is still evident, with a difference of 127 kg DM/ha noted between the highest growth rates in Cheshire (160 kg DM/ha) and lowest rates in Kent (33 kg DM/ha).

FFK contributor farms are reporting regrowth to be fast, with others closing up more paddocks for silage to manage surplus. However, others are still in need of rain, with winds stripping moisture from the ground, meaning that growth is yet to bounce back.
