Late mown grassland is good for nesting birds such as the Corn Bunting, but is usually dismissed as being of low value for livestock.
This farm walk will look at how late mown grassland can be managed to improve its value for livestock as well as birds and will look at work by RSPB Scotland to develop new grass mixes that could improve the quality of late mown grass. The challenges of using late mown grassland in a winter ration will also be discussed.
The farm walk will be followed by lunch at the Loch of Strathbeg visitor centre.
