Effective resource and nutrient management is not only a smart way of demonstrating this but is also important for creating resilient, efficient and profitable businesses.
With farming coming under increasing pressure to tackle the threat of climate change and protect the environment, now more than ever it is important that farmers take their roles as a land manager seriously, competently and with pride.
Effective resource and nutrient management is not only a smart way of demonstrating this but is also important for creating resilient, efficient and profitable businesses. In Ayrshire resource and nutrient management starts with grass.
At this on-farm event at our host farm, Dormieston, we will take a look at a broad range of issues relating to the management of grass during winter and early spring, including;
- Slurry, digestate and waste management
- Field drainage and fighting compaction
- Grass seed selection and establishment
- Winter grazing options appraisals
The meeting will be led by SAC consultants and specialists from around south-west Scotland, as well as guest speaker William Fleming, Germinal GB Ltd.
This outdoor event will be held on our host farm, and we request that you wear warm, clean clothing and footwear suitable for disinfecting. As lunch will be provided as part of the event, please use the booking form below to secure your place.
