The first of our “Profit from Grass” events took place at Nibthwaite Grange last night with grateful thanks to host farmer, John Atkinson. Over 25 farmers attended and listened to James Bretherton of AgScope talk about the benefits of diverse swards in reducing fertiliser use. We finished with a BBQ and chat in sunshine – a welcome break from the rain!
The second event is on Wednesday 1st June from 11am-2pm at Beckside Farm, Whicham, LA18 5LU with grateful thanks to host farmer, Patrick Morris-Eyton. James Bretherton will again be the speaker and will focus on soil and grassland management, but this time on a productive dairy farm. All welcome with food provided, but please book.
