Germinal Summer Farm Walk – Midlothian
July 27, 2021 @ 1:30 pm
Host farmer: John Goffin, Mauldslie Farm, Gorebridge, Midlothian, EH23 4TB (Sheep and deer)
Previously a ‘traditional’ hill farm 1,200ft above sea level, the now productive fields of high-quality grass are plain to see on the hillside of John Goffin’s sheep and deer farm. Despite the challenging situation, John is using brassicas and high sugar grasses to produce more home-grown forage for his 400 hinds and 400 breeding ewes.
What farmers will see:
- How challenging hill country can be transformed using high-quality grass
- The move from feeding ‘out of a bag’ to producing home-grown productive, high protein forage
- John’s Kiwi openness to share his failures as well as successes
