Grassland Management and Preparation for Breeding
Show Notes

On this episode we discuss grassland management and breeding preparation.

As we step into 2nd round grazing we cover some key points to look out for and tips to maximise this, including grass measuring weekly and getting out and walking your farm to visually assess growth rates and ground conditions. 
"Get down on your knees and grab the sward; two and a half fists is about a 1200 cover."
Breeding is one of the the most important 12 weeks of the farming year so we discuss rumen maintenance and mineral supplementation.  The key benefits of Body Condition Scoring is another big one.
