Grassland management and reseeding demonstration day

Tuesday 10.07.2018 , event , news

Hendre Dairy is a share farming collaboration involving landowner Robin Crossley and two neighbouring farmers, Iwan Roberts and Gwydion Jones. The operation now extends to 440 spring block calved cows on a 145ha grazing platform that is made up of routinely reseeding lower land pastures and improved upland areas.

What to see at Hendre Dairy:

  • An innovative share farming arrangement that is allowing two neighbouring farms to expand their family businesses.
  • Increasing the productivity of land through the care of the soil.
  • Methods of improving grassland from overseeding uplands to full reseeds of pastures.
  • The role of brassicas as a valuable forage source and as a break crop in reseeding.
  • Rotational grazing management
  • Using the Recommended Grass and Clover List to select the best performing leys.

The day will be structured to allow groups to hear presentations from expert speakers as part of a farm tour. Further details such as timings and directions will be available to those who register their interest in the event.
