Mob grazing: moving animals and assessing forage
Moving animals and assessing forage
Throughout October, three farmers in our mob grazing group will be sharing short daily videos on Twitter and in our Mob Grazing Scotland Facebook group showing:
- Cattle moves
- How much grass livestock are going into
- Decision making around paddock size
- Rest periods
- Forage quality
Charley Walker of Barnside Farm in the Borders will be sharing videos from 12-16 October, Nikki Yoxall of Howemill will be sharing videos 19-23 October, and Doug Christie of Durie Farms in Fife in Aberdeenshire will be sharing videos 26-30 October.
We'll also be holding an online Q&A with Charley, Doug and Nikki on Monday 2nd November at 7pm. Check back for how to register for the event.
