Beef from Grass project

Event date: 
Tuesday, September 12, 2017 - 10:30 to 14:30

Join AHDB Beef & Lamb for an event at Bragborough Hall and Pilkington Farms Ltd, two of the eight farms that are involved in the Beef from Grass project.

The Beef from Grass project aims to improve grassland management on four beef farms across England. Each improver farm has been assigned a mentor, who is a beef or dairy farmer who already practices good grassland management.

Bragborough Hall, a 100 cow suckler herd is one of the improver farms involved in this project and Pilkington Farms has been assigned as their mentor. This event will provide an opportunity to learn more about the grassland management changes implemented at Bragborough Hall and the effect it has had on beef performance. Additionally there is also an opportunity to visit Pilkington Farms Ltd, an autumn calving dairy herd which milks 1,000 cows on a purely grass based system.

Venue: Bragborough Hall, Daventry, Northamptonshire, NN11 7JD
