Key areas you wish to focus on as a demonstration farmer?
To optimise liveweight gain from forage
To consider which approaches are most effective for rectifying trace element shortfalls in our soils
To utilise EID for monitoring cattle performance to streamline our system and to reduce reaction times to any performance and health problems
To investigate the value of growing forage crops as break crops and to consider which perform best in terms of yield and cattle and lamb performance
"From a personal perspective we are looking forward to gaining knowledge from the specialists who will be supporting us in our role as a Farming Connect Demonstration Site. It is important for us to learn from the projects we will be involved in but we also want to demonstrate any benefits of what we do, by relaying our learnings to the wider industry."
