Strategic Farm, Northamptonshire – Finishing Nutrition
November 21, 2018 @ 10:30 am - 1:30 pm
Join us for the next AHDB Beef & Lamb Strategic Farm meeting, hosted by Mark Jelley of Perkins Lodge in Northamptonshire. Following our summer improving grassland management event, this event will focus on feeding, growing and finishing cattle to meet market specification.
Time: 10.30am – 1.30 pm (Includes lunch and farm walk)
Location: Perkins Lodge Farm. Brington Road Long Buckby, Northamptonshire, NN6 7NTFeed is one of the highest costs associated with beef cattle production and therefore getting it right is key to a successful business. Rations must be devised based on the type of animal being fed and the market specification being targeted.
This event will be an opportunity to learn:
- Feeding to match production system
- How to maximise intakes
- Feed management and processing
- Example rations for growing and finishing cattle
It will also be a great opportunity to hear and discuss the changes that Mark 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.
