Grazing for Profit and Biodiversity Walk


Multi-species swards can bring numerous benefits for biodiversity, soil health and livestock performance being diverse and of high nutritional value. These swards are however more difficult to manage than conventional grass based swards and persistency of many herbs and legumes can be poor if not managed and grazed correctly.

Join us for a farm walk at Coldrochie Farm, near Perth, on Thursday 31st August to learn more.

Emily Grant, farmer and Forrit Consultancy, and SAC’s Daniel Stout, will discuss the multitude of benefits incorporating multi-species swards into the sheep system at Coldrochie has brought for biodiversity and productivity and share experiences of species selection and how to best manage these swards for optimal performance and improved persistency.

Please wear appropriate footwear and clothing for the farm walk which will be followed by a complementary lunch.
