Prosper from Pasture
Welsh farmers are fortunate to be farming in a country with suitable soils and a climate to grow high volumes of quality grass. It is widely accepted that generally, producers in Wales are not currently utilising this valuable resource to strengthen the sustainability of their livestock enterprises to its full potential.
The imminent changes to farm support systems and the potential of increased product price volatility has heightened the need to look at ways of cutting costs by efficiently utilising our most cost-effective livestock feed. Farming Connect launched Prosper from Pasture last spring, a fully funded enhanced programme which includes 3 levels, Entry Level, Intermediate – also known as Mastergrass, and Advanced.
**The application window is now closed.**
Huw Jones Wholehouse farm, Talgarth, Brecon has attended our Master Grass residential two-day programme and has proceeded to become a Prosper from Pasture advanced level Group member.
To be a part of the Prosper from Pasture programme, each individual must fill in an Expression of Interest Form, available below.
Expression of interest are individually assessed and individuals choose what level is the right one for them.
After completing entry, it is possible to progress to Intermediate level, and after completing the Intermediate level, it's possible for the member to then progress onto the Advanced level.
