Germinal Summer Farm Walk – Carmarthenshire
July 20, 2021 @ 6:30 pm
Host farmer: Rheinallt Harries, Llwynmendy Farm, Bethlehem, Llandeilo, Carmarthenshire, SA19 6YE (Dairy)
Producing quality grazed grass and silage to produce cost-effective home-grown feed underpins the whole farm approach taken by Rheinallt Harries. Having tried one Germinal Aber High Sugar Grass mixture, Rheinallt is now using a range of mixtures to fulfil his production goals. Running a 180-head Friesian crossbred, spring block-calving herd, milk from forage is critical for Rheinallt, currently sitting just under 70%.
What farmers will see:
- How high-quality grass has produced better milk outputs
- Methods of increasing metabolisable energy (ME) yield per hectare using rotational grazing
- Use of multi-species leys within a high production dairy system
