Building Grass for an Extended Grazing Season

Event Time 7pm
Venue Online
Join John Douglas and Joseph Dunphy, Teagasc Grass10 and Micheal O'Leary from PastureBase Ireland along with David Brady, Heavy Soils farmer and John Galvin, Dry soils farmer as they go through building grass for an extended grazing season.

August is a critical time for grazing management, and many farmers believe it is the beginning of the grass year. This is because the plans put in place in August will impact grass availability right through from now until the beginning of the 2nd rotation next year!

John Douglas & Joseph Dunphy from Teagasc Grass10 and Micheal O'Leary from PastureBase will go through the benefits of building grass, what the targets are for your farm and how to build it! The panel will also be joined by David Brady, Heavy Soils farmer and John Galvin, Dry soils farmer who will give their own experiences on how they improved their farms.

On the night topics discussed will include:

  • August is the beginning of the grazing calendar
  • Learn the why, what and how of building grass for Autumn
  • Get the views of experienced dry and heavy soils farmers
  • Get your questions answered by the Grass10 & PastureBase team
