Women in Agriculture: Borders – Getting More Meat From Grass

Are you concerned about how to control your costs in these uncertain times?

Do you want to learn how to make the most of your most valuable resource?

In times of uncertainty and market volatility, the most effective way to make your business more resilient is to reduce production costs.
Grass remains the cheapest livestock feed; and making more of your grass means higher livestock performance/output with reduced reliance on purchased feeds.

This meeting looks at grassland and soil management with a view to improving performance.

Speakers include

  • Grazing specialist Poppy Frater
  • Consultant Donald Dunbar
