Bale Grazing – Lessons From Our Field Lab

Discussion Tent

Six Pasture for Life member farms have come together in an Innovative Farmers Field Lab to undertake a four year study to explore the impacts of bale grazing on soil and forage. In this session we will hear from three of the field lab farmers who have been implementing bale grazing as an outwintering strategy for a couple of years. Bale grazing is more common in North America, and offers a viable outwintering strategy which increasingly more farmers are looking to try out this approach. Our panel will share their learnings so far focusing on animal health, labour implications, soil and finances.
