Four prizes up for grabs, each worth £120
Four classes – 1 – Beef Suckler Silage, 2 – Beef Suckler Hay/Haylage, 3 – Sheep Silage, 4 – Sheep Hay/Haylage
The very long dry, hot summer led to ewes sharply weaned, sucklers buffer fed and dairy cows brought in. Therefore, many are thinking early about “winter forage” this year.
TeamSheep has been doing an increasing number of sheep feeding plans based on forage analysis over the last few years.
Forage analysis has enabled rationalisation of concentrates bought and fed (in some instances reducing costs) and early identification of gaps.
The same principles are applied to beef suckler nutrition with TeamBeef receiving an increasing number of requests.
• maximise ewe and cow health
• maximise lamb and calf vitality at delivery
• optimise colostrum production and neonate thrift
and … can be done in advance of Spring
To promote discussions about forage quality, targeted feed usage and cost control Teams Sheep and Beef are running a Client Forage Competition
