Stocking rate decisions for future systems

Stocking Rate is a key decision for dairy farms due to implications for grazing management, feed budgets, performance per cow and farm labour/infrastructure requirements. While stocking rate is linked to farm profit, it is through grass utilised that the effects occur. As a result, optimal stocking rate varies by farm.

This workshop featured researchers Michael O’Donovan and Donal Patton, Teagasc Researchers; and Patrick Moylan Teagasc Kilkenny Dairy Advisor.
