Getting to Grips with the Summer Wedge on PastureBase - Webinar12 May 2022 12 May 2022
As we enter into the summer months Irish farmers have huge scope to make more money from grazing management by feeding their livestock the best quality grass available. Data from PastureBase has highlighted that pre-grazing yields (the grass covers which animals graze) are too high (too stemmy) in 75% of cases. If this was corrected the financial benefit for farmers would be massive. Tune in to make sure you are doing summer grazing management right!
- Understand the grass wedge & PastureBase report
- Use the summer grazing targets
- Make better grazing decisions using the projected planner
- Develop a fertiliser strategy for your grass and grass-clover paddocks
