Planning Reseeding  for the 2018 Grass season – new grass varieties available (for example Aberzeus , a outstanding new Diploid from Germinal )

A new product which can be added to a grazing compound is NOVATAN, this utilises excess protein in the diet, so is good for the cow and the environment  


Paddock grazing for Lambs

Fantastic new grass ley and the cell grazing systems is really making a difference to our production from forage on this farm, we estimate at this point a  saving of £3000 on lamb finisher , by utilising grass like this, also it has enabled more silage to be made elsewhere on the farm DSC_0057

Grass Re Seeding its not too late in 2016

We have done quite a area of Pasture renovation this year, soil temperatures are fairly high at 16-17 degrees so germinations have been very quick.

Renovating a pasture process Graze/Cut as low as you can go – Drill a renovation seed into the sward- Roll- graze for 7 days- Remove stock for 3 weeks, then back the rotation
