Grass & forage management

Grass is the most important, yet often overlooked, resource for livestock production. Well-managed grassland provides the most economic feed throughout the year, either as grazing or conserved forage.

As production costs continue to rise, there is no doubt that well-managed grazed grass has an increasingly important role in on-farm profitability for dairy producers.

Focusing on both growing and utilising more high-quality grazed grass will reduce dependence on purchased feed and in return improve farm net profit.

This page brings you the latest research and advice on grass, forage and soil management to help improve grassland productivity on livestock farms.
