Herbal leys webinar 5 – How to successfully manage sheep on herbal leys

July 22, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Maintaining species diversity in herbal leys grazed with sheep can be challenging. Join AHDB, NSA and British Grassland Society to hear our panel discuss optimising ewe and lamb performance whilst addressing this and some of the other management challenges involved to get the best outcomes.

The panel includes Tommy Boland, Professor of Ruminant Nutrition and Sheep Production at University College Dublin and James Small, farming 1,400 ewes and 120 sucklers in Somerset. Further speakers to follow.

The webinar will cover:

  • Managing ewes and lambs on the leys
  • Finishing lambs – do herbal leys affect lamb weights?
  • Grazing strategies – can herbal leys reduce wormer use?
  • Practical experience from our panel
