Winner’s Farm Walk – Trefnant Hall, Powys
Marc Jones – BGS Grassland Farmer of the Year 2021
On 24 May we had a fantastic visit to the farm of Marc Jones, the winner of the BGS Grassland Farmer of the Year in 2021. Around 100 people attended from as far afield as Devon, Dumfries, and Ireland.
We started the tour off by hearing about grassland management on the farm, followed by the use of fodder beet for outwintering of the yearling cattle and the ewe flock. Marc has recently taken on an adjoining 80 ha of land and he explained how this would be incorporated into his farming system. The final stop was to see the calves on the herbal leys, before heading back to the farm for lunch.
