Is GRASS the way forward?

Event Date : July 9, 2019

Honingham Thorpe Farms, NR9 5BZ Maximum of £5 per head to cover the catering costs. 3 pm

An exciting collaboration is running a trial of herbal leys for grazing sheep on a Norfolk farm. Join us for a tour of the trial site and talks by a number expert speakers who will summarise the evidence to date and explore the following questions

  • Do herbal leys produce better growth for lambs?

  • Can herbal plants help reduce worm levels?
  • Are there added benefits in terms of soil fertility when the land is returned to arable cropping?
  • What is the cost benefit of herbal leys over traditional pastures?

All sheep farmers are welcome!

The talks and tour will come first followed by a hog roast or similar at the end, with a chance to quiz the experts and get answers to your questions.
