Join us for the next AHDB Beef & Lamb Strategic Farm meeting, hosted by Bertie Newman of Manor Farm in Dorchester. Following our summer improving grassland management event, this event will focus on suckler cow nutrition.
Date: 12th November 2018
Time: 10.30am – 1.30 pm (Includes lunch and farm walk)
Location: Manor Farm, Cattistock, Dorchester, Dorset, DT2 0JJ
Feed is a major cost of keeping a suckler cow and has a huge impact on fertility, calving ease and calf performance.
This event will be an opportunity to learn:
- The principles of suckler cow nutrition, particularly during the dry period
- Rationing and suckler cow requirements at different times of the year
- Managing body condition throughout the year
- Impact of cow nutrition on colostrum quality
It will also be a great opportunity to hear and discuss the changes that Bertie has made to his business over the last year and capture anything that you may be able to apply to your own business.
To attend the meeting you will need to book so please email KE.firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01904 771212, so we can plan catering accordingly.
