Horsham Downs Discussion Group - March date changed

On-farm discussion group

**Postponed to 11th March due to COVID-19**

The Bird family have tried various crops to help with the dry Summers and have taken a liking to Fodder Beet, increasing the amount they planted this year. At discussion group we will go see the crop as well as discuss:

  • The cost of growing
  • Establishment management
  • Transitioning cows onto the crop
  • Milk response
  • How does the crop fit into the farm system.

The crop will be getting yielded next week so we will have accurate data on the crops performance and cost.

Lunch and drinks have kindly been provided by Smart Forage.

Protect our industry - please arrive with clean boots to reduce the risk of spreading a disease, pest or weed.
