Scottish Grazing Conferences

Scottish Grazing Conferences

Wednesday, January 18, 2017

A strong line-up of speakers from Scotland and overseas has been recruited to speak at a Grazing Conferences being held at Moffat House Hotel on Wednesday 8 February and Huntingtower Hotel in Perth on Thursday 9 February.

“Better Grazing = Better Business” are free events, organised by Quality Meat Scotland (QMS), which will look at how managing grazing can help improve the bottom line for sheep and beef producers.

Emily Grant, Grassland Coordinator at QMS, commented: “Using the grass grown on the farm to drive profitability involves making the most of the grass available, managing the surpluses and deficits whilst balancing this with the needs of livestock production.  Changes to grazing management can help achieve this balance and offer opportunities to increase output per hectare and reduce costs.”

 

She added: “We hope that those attending these events will gain an insight into the sort of systems that have been successfully implemented in Scotland and be inspired to consider making changes to their own systems”.

 

The “Better Grazing = Better Business” events on 8 and 9 February begin at 10am and end at 3pm. Lunch will be provided. To reserve you place at this event phone QMS on 0131 472 4040 or email info@qmscotland.co.uk
