Managing Rising Costs on Beef and Sheep Farms

Various Dates

On-farm

With the impact of rising input costs being felt across the industry, CAFRE are hosting a number of on-farm events. These events are designed to consider what can be done on-farm to mitigate rising costs.  The events will be hosted in four on-farm locations across Northern Ireland in mid-May and are open to the farming public. Pre-registration is essential.

Event topic discussion will include:
– Creating a fodder budget for winter and actions to ensure adequate supplies of fodder.
– Use of fertiliser and organic manures to maximise grass growth.
– Rotational grazing and benefits of better grazing management.
– Clover as a longer term strategy to reduce input costs.
– Cashflow management and budgeting.
These events are supported by the Rising Costs Industry Taskforce.
