Grass represents the highest volume and the cheapest form of feed in the dairy ration - how it is used and managed varies greatly according to the farm system.
Grass+ covers all aspects of grassland management and includes organic sward management, improving efficiency of fertiliser use, buffer feeding and managing high yielders at grass. Grass+ sets a challenge to achieve at least 10 tonnes of utilised dry matter (DM)/ha of grazed grass at a cost of £80 per tonne DM.
It brings together research from DairyCo and other organisations around the world to make it the definitive guide to managing grass.
