Grassland news - June 2011

The Grassland Development Centre and HCC Farming Connect project 'Getting to Grips with Grazed Grass' is now working with an Organic Centre Wales Demonstration farmer Andrew Owen, who is already an enthusiastic grass measurer! This month's quality analysis from the ley in the project had an impressive digestibility (71D,) a crude protein of 20.8 and high sugar levels. Look out for the open day on this farm later this summer.

Working with OCW, and the BOBL project, GDC is also looking at growing naked oats on three farms for poultry feed. It is early days but all crops have established well, and we will be tracking their progress to harvest and feed quality.
