Field Lab: All Over Clover
Exploring herbal leys that suit Scottish soils and climate
Mossgiel Farm, Mauchline, Ayrshire
Tuesday 6th February 2018, 1-3.30pm
What grass seed mixes work best for dairy cows?
Join a Field Lab to find out. Dairy farmer Bryce Cunningham is trying to improve his grass swards at Mossgiel Farm, and over the course of this year will be comparing some off-the-shelf grass seed mixes with bespoke mixes suited to local conditions.
Our kick off meeting is in Bryce’s kitchen over tea and coffee, with Andrew Best from Watson Seeds discussing how to get the most out of herbal leys and a trip to the field to look at the current grass quality.
Free of charge to farmers and growers.
