Grass Growth 2020

Update 7th August –

we are no Year on Year 9 % behind last year in terms of total grass grown , we had a big bounce back in July.

  • Action points while grass growth slows down
  • Extend the grazing round in terms of days it take to round the grazing area by adding more area – this might mean bringing silage area in the the short term
  • Feed silage or another form of Dry matter (compounds could be a option if you want to keep it simple , but its expensive )
  • watch condition on animals if grass supply is short – adjust diet accordingly

Soil temperatures now running at 16 degrees and climbing.

Make the most of grass by grazing in paddocks if possible ( it will increase grass growth by 40% just by grazing in this way )
