Soil Farmer of the Year 2020 Virtual farm walk with winner Alex Brewster

23rd Sep 2020

When? 20th October 2020

What time? 1.30 - 3pm

Where? Wherever you like! Its happening virtually on Zoom!

Come along and find out why Alex Brewster has been awarded 2020 Livestock Soil Farmer of the year! 

Alex farms 1000ha at Rotmell Farm in Perthshire, which is comprised of 130ha of improved pasture and hill ground. Alex has always been interested in farming with the environment but started experimenting with rotational grazing in 2013. The grazing has now morphed into a mob grazing system which has brought about improvements in the soil structure and rooting depth of plants, nutrient availability, pasture utilisation, stock health and growth rates, and the length of time that the stock are able to graze. Alex is seeing his soils adapt and change, and is now focussed on building more resilience into his system.

The farm walk will be run virtually via Zoom and attendees will get a chance to understand more about the farming system at Rotmell and the transition to a regenerative approach.

There will also be a chance to hear about a new project evaluating the potential for rock dust to improve soil carbon sequestration levels on-farm.
