Farm Advisory Service
John Ritchie will be sharing how he has developed a productive forage based sheep system at Montalt Farm, Perthshire, with an effective well planned grazing system breaking reliance on purchased feeds.
An appropriate lambing date combined with rotational grazing in the autumn and a pre-lambing rotation in March is allowing John to run twin bearing ewes through pregnancy and lambing on forage alone without concentrate feeding.
