Summer Meeting

BGS Annual Summer Meeting

Each year the summer meeting is organised by a local committee from the host grassland society.  The three-day study tour, usually in early July, takes place in a different location each year.

Delegates visit a range of farms and research and development institutions to see systems and methods typical of the area visited.  This allows them to see the strengths and problems of grassland management specific to that area.
