Better grazing in focus
Livestock farmers are invited to attend a ‘Better Grazing’ meeting being organised by Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) later this month.
Grazing expert James Daniel of Precision Grazing Ltd will be the key speaker and will highlight the different fencing and watering solutions to aid grazing management.
The aim of the meeting, which will involve a visit to a local farm to see a range of fencing and watering options set-up, is to equip attending farmers with knowledge, understanding, tips and ideas on what equipment may suit their own systems.
James Daniel of Precision Grazing Ltd gained his knowledge and experience whilst working in New Zealand. Now back in the UK, his company provides advice, design and installation on grazing systems, including fencing and watering.
The meeting will begin at 10am with a morning presentation to cover key topics. Following lunch there will be a practical session on a nearby farm to give participants insight into the most common range of temporary and permanent electrical fencing equipment available.
The meeting will be held in Dryfesdale Hotel, Lockerbie on Tuesday, November 28. The workshop is free and lunch is provided. As the afternoon sessions involve a farm visit. Clean boots will be essential for biosecurity reasons. Contact QMS on 0131 472 4040 or email info@ qmscotland.co.uk to reserve a place.
