GETTING MORE FROM YOUR GRAZING
A great opportunity to come and learn about a number of grazing livestock projects being carried out at the world leading Rothamsted Research Institute at North Wyke, Devon.
The event will cover both sheep and cattle grazing which include multi-species lays, as well as renovated and permanent pastures. These projects are trying to address how we can intensify livestock agriculture in a sustainable way, through real farm solutions.
North Wyke would like to welcome farmers, graziers, land owners, contractors and all types of agricultural and environmental consultants to this event. The day will include short presentations and discussions with grazing livestock researchers along with field trial visits and practical demonstrations.
