With a difficult spring leading to challenging grazing conditions, Teagasc Grass10 Manager, John Maher, is on this week’s Beef Edge podcast with his top tips in relation to grassland management this spring. 


John discusses the current soil temperatures and grass growth across the country and on farms where grazing has been delayed and very little grazing has taken place to date, John explains what the key steps are to get stock to grass in the coming weeks. 


John highlights the grazing targets to hit to avoid having too much grass left at the end of the rotation or having too much grazed. 


Slurry has been spread on most farms and for those planning to go with slurry in the coming weeks John advises this should be applied on silage ground.
