Description

Grass is the world's most important crop but on its own it is of little use. The grassland farmer can make full use of this valuable resource by growing and conserving grass and forage crops efficiently. Well-managed grass can yield high levels of milk, beef and lamb. Profit comes from matching grass quality and availability to the needs of the animal. This book, part of a series commissioned by "Farmers Weekly", aims to be a practical guide to grass production, grazing management, forage conservation and feeding. The emphasis is on linking technical efficiency with profit. It is aimed at grassland farmers, advisers and students of agriculture and applied biology.show more
