Women in Agriculture – Caithness: Grassland Matters


Grass is a farm or croft’s biggest asset and the lowest cost feed that can be grown. At this meeting SAC Specialist Poppy Frater will be covering all elements of good grassland management and soil health.

Along with a farm visit to a nearby farm where we will be doing some hands-on grass measuring we will also be covering –

• Soil structure
• How to grow grass
• Getting the best out of your grass
• Reseeding and grazing systems

The Farm Advisory Service (FAS) has been running Women in Agriculture events since 2017, and now runs 11 discussion groups across Scotland. The discussion groups and the Facebook group are open to all women working in Scottish agriculture, from those with daily involvement in a farm business, to those who are just starting out and interested in finding out more about farming. This meeting will be run for all 11 discussion groups. For more information please visit www.fas.scot/discussion-groups/women-in-agriculture/
