Making a success of outwintering cattle


Join AHDB and Luppo Diepenbroek, independent on farm nutritionist and consultant, for a webinar on outwintering cattle.

The webinar will be suitable for beef and dairy farmers who plan to outwinter their cattle. There will be guidance on how to determine the suitability of your fields and decide which crop is most suitable for your system.

­Outwintering has the potential to reduce costs through reducing bedding and feed requirements. There is also the potential to increase herd size or free up housing for other stock, such as finishing cattle. However, outwintering needs proper planning and preparation for most eventualities – we will discuss the many factors to consider to make a success of outwintering.

The webinar will cover:

  • Field selection and environmental considerations
  • Cost comparisons of outwintering compared with housing
  • The range of crops available
  • How to calculate feed requirements
  • Grazing management

The webinar will last approximately 35 minutes, with time for questions at the end.

If you can’t make the webinar, please still register, as it will be recorded and sent to you afterwards to watch in your own time
