Let's Talk Cattle Webinar - Early Spring Grassland Management


Alan Dillon, Teagasc Beef Specialist was joined by John Douglas, Teagasc Grass10 on this episode of Let's Talk Cattle which took place on Thursday, 11th February to discuss Early Spring Grassland Management.

With longer spring days edging closer farmers will now need to start thinking about turning stock out to grass to make use of cheap weight gain.

John Douglas from the Teagasc Grass10 team spoke with Alan Dillon about what practices farmers need to adopt to ensure earlier turnout is achieved and maximum use is made of what grass is available on the farm prior to closing up for silage. Fertilization rates and closing up for silage was also discussed on the night.
