Flora locale heathland and conservation grazing workshop at Ingleborough

[Tuesday 24 August 2010]

The workshop will look at an innovative approach for grazing high environmental value land which takes account of the positive contribution grazing animals can make to climate change mitigation.

The system involves the use of winter foggage to rear traditional single sucker beef animals while maintaining herb rich limestone grassland. The workshop will be of particular interest to hill farmers entering Higher Level Scheme agreements and their advisers.

There will be a site visit to Ingleborough National Nature Reserve followed by an indoor session, covering the principles of this approach and how it can be applied on hill farms with extensive cattle enterprises. In association with the Grazing Animal Partnership.

Fee £100 / £75 concessions visit here (Ref N3) for how to book.
