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
