Conservation grazing – the balance between profitability and ecology

Part of Farm Carbon Toolkit’s Farm Net Zero project this evening event will focus on conservation grazing, how to manage and produce high quality beef, and the resultant benefits to the farm carbon footprint and biodiversity.

  • Campbell Hill will discuss his system including the practicalities of herd management.
  • Gerald Babcock, farmer from West Penwith, will explain his conservation grazing system over 1500 acres and the stewardship payments he receives and the future options.
  • Mike Ingram and Lawrence Sampson of FWAG SW will provide an ecological perspective for the grazing of fragile habitats.

You will come away with knowledge of the practicalities associated with conservation grazing, and some of the challenges in delivering ecological diversity.

The event will be hosted by Farm Net Zero Monitor Farmer, Campbell Hill of Trerieve Farm. A pasty will be provided, so booking essential. We will meet at the end of Portuan road, Hannafore, Looe, at the start of the coast path.
