Field Lab: All Over Clover
Exploring grass seed mixes and grazing systems for dairy
Mossgiel Farm, Tarbolton Road, Mauchline, Ayrshire, Tuesday 12 June, 2018, 12.30-3pm
At the first Field Lab meeting in February we discussed the challenges of establishing herbal leys without carrying out a full reseed, and came up with some options.
Since then farmer Bryce Cunningham has developed a Field Lab plan, informed by Holistic Management training that he’s been on. This plan will focus on the root causes of issues that he’s having, like soil compaction.
Come hear more about his ideas and plans – how he’s redesigned the grazing system on the farm and what he hopes to achieve with his grass swards. This will involve a trip to one of the trial fields to look at, and assess, his grass quality.
Free to farmers and land managers; £40 + VAT to others. Booking is required. Book online.
