RCF East Anglia: The power of the mob
The benefits of different grazing systems & understand how they can fit into your farming system. With additional equipment demo
There are a lot of different grazing systems, all with different benefits and challenges. At this workshop, part of the RCF Farm for the Future programme, participants will see mob grazing in action, have a chance to discuss the logistics of setting up such a system, discuss the different grazing options available and view some of the cutting edge equipment which aims to make livestock management more efficient.
At Old Hall farm, Rebecca Mayhew takes a pragmatic approach to grazing but underlying everything that happens on the farm is respect and care for the animals and an equal amount of health and respect for the land upon which they graze.
The workshop will involve walking around the farm to see mob grazing in action, a demonstration of equipment and a chance to sit and discuss grazing systems over a lunch from the Old Hall Farm kitchen.
