Grassland events

Regrettably, Grassland & Muck 2020 will no longer take place on 20-21 May, due to the cornonavirus outbreak.

Although Grassland & Muck has been cancelled, the organisers’ grassland management survey into how farmers are looking after their pasture, is still up and running.

Livestock farmers are therefore encouraged to go online to answer a few simple questions, to help demonstrate how grassland management is changing.

A £50 Amazon voucher is up for grabs for one lucky participant, as well as six pairs of tickets to a future Grassland & Muck Event.

Visit www.grasslandevent.co.uk to find the survey.
