Grazing Cover Crops with Sheep
Event date: Sunday, 7 June 2020 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm
Innovative Farmers virtual workshop. Cover cropping ahead of spring drilling can help protect soils over-winter, reduce nutrient losses and return organic matter. Grazing of cover crops by sheep can potentially reduce feed costs, return nitrogen in a readily available form and reduce the reliance on glyphosate to terminate cover crops. However, if not managed correctly, grazing can damage soil structure thereby increasing the risk of run-off and soil erosion. Join this virtual meeting to explore the potential of a new field lab addressing issues around grazing cover crops with sheep.
