Spring Farm Walks 2013 dates announced

Spring Farm Walks 2013 dates announced

Wednesday, December 12, 2012

In 2013 BGS, RABDF and DairyCo will be working together again to bring you two spring farm walks:

The first walk will be held in Sundridge Hill, Kent. We will be visiting William Westacott and his herdsman Richard Evans on the 10th of April 2013. We will be discussing balancing the protein ration with grass, the economics of grazing high yielding cows, the pros and cons of running a flying herd, and the future outlook for home farm.

The second walk will be held in Skipton, North Yorkshire. We will be visiting Jos and Sally Lancaster on the 16th of April 2013. We will be discussing the benefits of having the flexibility to graze outdoors or have animals indoors in poor weather, their reseeding rotation, soil maintenance and dealing with compaction, and their work on healthy feet and tracks.

Coffees and teas will be available and lunch will be provided at both events.

Bookings will open soon. Keep an eye on the website on how to book and for more information on both farm walks.
