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 the Soil Association 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.
