Grazing management for high lamb performance to weaning

Grazed grass accounts for over 90% of the annual food intake of the ewe and her lambs. It should be remembered that whilst grazed grass is the cheapest feed available for sheep production it is expensive to produce. Hence it is essential to maximise lamb performance from grazed grass.

Teagasc Open Day at Solohead Research Farm

This Open Day at Solohead coincides with a large reduction in milk price this spring. There is an urgent requirement for dairy farmers to reduce the cost of milk production. Research at the Solohead Research farm has shown that fertilizer costs can be substantially reduced by replacing chemical fertilizer with white clover and the efficient recycling of slurry. Well managed cloverbased swards can supply 140 kg/ha of N each year at little cost, which is a large proportion of the N requirement on an average Irish dairy farm. Another benefit is that white clover herbage is of high quality and maintains high quality pasture under low nitrogen input systems. Other topics covered at the Open Day will include grazing management, dairy cow health and fertility and use of high EBI genetics.
