 Grass10 Developing Grazing Infrastructure Course


Who is this course for?

Beef, Sheep & Dairy farmers who want to:

  • Improve grazing infrastructure on their farm

Why is this course for me?
Growing grass is one thing, but utilising it is another! The biggest limitation to grass utilisation on many Irish farms is grazing infrastructure. This course involves:

  • On-farm practical experience to improve grazing infrastructure on your farm

Remember every ton grass DM/ha eaten is worth €105/ha to a drystock farmer & €173/ha to a dairy farmer.

At the end of the course you will have:

  • An in-depth knowledge of all forms of grazing infrastructure
  • The capabilities to design & build robust grazing infrastructure for your farm
  • The skills to improve grass utilisation which improves farm profitability
