Description

Best Western Dryfesdale Country House Hotel, Dryfebridge, Lockerbie

Thursday 28th February, 10am–1pm, including lunch

With the combination of snow and drought last year, it’s likely that by the end of February your feed stocks will be getting low. But how can you get your animals out early if your grass hasn’t grown enough?

Join us and pasture expert Andre van Barneveld of Graise Consultancy to find out how to make practical decisions about if, when and how to apply nitrogen.

Learn how to consider the soil, grazing and livestock on your farm together.

Find out what combination of slurry, muck and nitrogen fertiliser will get grass green and growing.

Come along and find how you can get more from your grazing season.

Free of charge to farmers and land managers. Booking is required.

Book your free place now by clicking on the register button.

For more information call Jane on 0131 666 2474 or email.

Funding for this activity is made available through the SRDP Knowledge Transfer and Innovation Fund (which is jointly funded by the Scottish Government and the European Union), with partner funding from Quality Meat Scotland, Forestry Commission Scotland, Innovative Farmers and The Prince of Wales’s Charitable Foundation.
