It may be the depths of winter now, but work is already going on for next year’s Grassland UK – the major grassland event – on farmland next to the Bath and West Showground, Shepton Mallet, Somerset.

Here, reseeding of 60-acres of the site is taking place with Masstock Cut Master mixture which aims to give good silage yields ready for the event on 7 May. The show continues to grow, with new features for next year that include muck demonstrations, technical advice on soil structure and the latest developments on tractor-trailer legislation, dealing with effluent and coping with NVZs.
