Grassland management tips for this spring

With a difficult spring leading to challenging grazing conditions, Teagasc Grass10 Manager, John Maher is on this week’s Beef Edge podcast with his top tips in relation to grassland management this spring.

John discusses the current soil temperatures and grass growth across the country. He also explains what the key steps are to get stock to grass in the coming weeks on farms where grazing has been delayed and very little grazing has taken place to date.

Additionally, John highlights the grazing targets to hit to avoid having too much grass left at the end of the rotation or having too much grazed. 

Slurry has been spread on most farms. For those planning to go with slurry in the coming weeks, John advises that this should be applied on silage ground.
