Grassland Management

Grazed grass is the cheapest and most efficient form of feed on the farm.

If you manage it well:

  • production and utilization of grass could be increased significantly

  • inputs can be decreased

  • production costs can be reduced

  • profit margins will increase

This page aims to group together Grassland Management activity undertaken through the Farming Connect programme.
