grazing1Effective Grazing Management

Make the most of your farm's grazing

Grazed grass is the cheapest source of forage on most farm. To get the best out of grass it needs to be managed with an ‘arable mentality’; feeding it properly and utilising it in a way that minimises waste. In practice most swards can produce grass of 12 ME in May but management affects the rest of the season. Where swards are allowed to deteriorate quality falls quickly. With effective sward management an ME of 11 MJ and above can be maintained throughout the season.
