- Protect your paddocks, and the environment
Taking cows out of the paddock can protect against treading damage and potentially increase feed grown on wet, heavy soils.
- Pasture species mixtures to reduce nitrogen leaching
The Forages for Reduced Nitrate Leaching (FRNL) Programme is a six-year study investigating how any of a wide variety of forages can be used within modern grazing systems to both improve animal production and reduce nitrate leaching.
