Grazing Mentors Farm Walk

Grazing Mentors Farm Walk

On Thursday 5th March we will be holding a farm walk at the 300-cow dairy unit of Duncan and Sarah Howie, at Welbatch Farm, Hook-a-Gate near Shrewsbury.  The event will start at 11.00 am.

The Grazing Mentors Project, funded by the Prince‚Äôs Countryside Fund, offered free mentoring with a focus on problem solving and goal-setting on the mentees own farm.  Together with Matthew Ingram, their Grazing Mentor, Sarah and Duncan will explain how the mentoring process has helped them with grassland management as they moved to autumn block calving from an all-year-round pattern. 

The event is free to attend but for catering purposes you must register either by email to or by text to 07833 437974 indicating how many places you would like to book.
