Win-win for livestock health, wildlife and your pocket!

Come and join us in the field to share ideas and experiences with low input livestock, diverse pastures and initial findings from research trials on the farm.

Rob Havard's pedigree Angus suckler herd graze on diverse natural pastures, including 80ha of wildflower meadows. He is using grazing techniques that are based on recreating natural processes; this allows them him to grow healthier cattle for less money whilst leaving the land in better condition. He finds the stock thrive on diverse pastures that which provide all their needs and is able to fatten all stock from grass and natural herbs alone. Populations of wild birds are increasing and more wildflowers are being introduced each year from local wildlife reserves.

The Day will include lunch, a farm tour and Q & A session.
