Grass10 Autumn Closing Up for Spring Grass Farm Walks
Grow More – Graze More – Earn More!!
The most important task any farmer will undertake over the next 2 months is to ensure that their farm is closed off properly in order to ensure an adequate supply of grass early next spring.
Many farmers do not realise that the grazing season actually begins in the autumn and that autumn management of grazed grass is the primary factor influencing the supply of grass available in spring on any farm.
Since the ‘Closing up of the farm’ is so important to the profitability of livestock farming, we have organised on-farm events as part of the Grass10 campaign that will run nationwide throughout early October. These farm walks will focus on helping you ensure your grass fields are closed off right to guarantee a supply of grass next spring on your farm.
All are welcome to attend.
The Grass10 campaign is kindly supported by:
AIB, FBD Insurance, Grassland Agro, Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine and the Irish Farmers Journal.
