An Introduction to Grassland Management

Humberston, Dingwall IV15 9TP

Effective grassland management can have a profound impact on an agricultural business.  There are many benefits to effective grassland management such as; increased farm efficiency, stocking capacity and silage yields.

Our speaker Paddy Jack will be covering the following topics;

  • Grassland management
  • Effective grazing management
  • In-depth look at sward composition
  • Identifying species within a sward
  • Identifying the need to reseed

 Later in the afternoon the group will have the chance to discuss methods to improve the grassland samples provided.

 We would ask that attendees bring along some turf from their own farms/crofts to be examined.
