Grass 10 Autumn Events
Preparing for 2020
The purpose of these events is to emphasise the importance of closing off strategy in the autumn in preparation for spring grass 2020. Farmers are invited to see research/demonstration farms first hand and receive updates on trials. The events are of particular value for discussion group members looking to update themselves on the latest research being carried out in Teagasc. The meetings will be short and concise dealing with autumn grazing management and update on grazing studies.
Autumn grazing, Clover Use, Spring 2020 and Protected Urea are among the topics being discussed at the upcoming Teagasc #Grass10 autumn events.
