The key messages in this week’s newsletter are:

  • PastureBase data for the week & Elodie Ruelle’s MoSt Grass Growth Prediction Model.  
  • Heavy rain on Tuesday brings grazing to a halt however the forecast is promising. Continue to walk your farm and monitor ground conditions in the coming days
  • A research project detailing the ability of on-off grazing to extend the grazing season and increase the % of grazed grass in the diet.
  • Did you miss the recent “Getting Familiar with PastureBase Ireland” webinar in early February? Watch it back here

Tim Kelly operates a spring calving Dairy farm in Athenry, Co. Galway and is part of the South Galway Grass10 Group. We visited Tim last week to see how he was progressing with spring grazing on his farm. Watch the video here
