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

Due to the uncertain nature of COVID-19 restrictions, please register in advance so you can be contacted in the event of a cancellation.  Choose your start time when booking your place.
