Get up to speed on soil and forage management

EBLEX and Earth Analytics Group are running a number of workshops throughout March looking at what we can learn from North America when it comes to improving soil and forage management.

One of Canada’s leading mob graziers, Neil Dennis, will be discussing methods used to improve soil health, forage quality, quantity, and animal performance. Gregg Simmonds, an American ranch manager, will discuss how he is growing more grass while improving soil health, water and biodiversity.

They will also talk about how they plan their grazing strategies to ensure that soils

develop good levels of organic matter, which helps with drought resilience and improving soil structure.
