Understanding the benefits of growing a cereal and legume mix as a complete feed

Overview

Cost: Free

Join Farming Connect at one the Our Farms, Gelli Goll Farm, to learn more about the on-going field trial focusing on growing a cereal and legume mix to provide a complete home grown winter-feed. 

Gelli Goll is a Beef, Sheep and Arable farm on the outskirts of Cowbridge which is currently run by Mark Jarvis and his daughter Bethany. As a means to become more self-sufficient and create a complete home-grown winter diet, this year the farm will be growing a cereal and legume mix, which is an eligible mix for the Welsh Government Growing for the Environment Grant. The aim for this coming winter is that the homegrown crop will meet livestock nutritional needs, without relying on bought in feed and by increasing home grown protein values and yields, compared with single variety crops.

During this on-farm event, there will be an opportunity to discuss the benefits, planting process and management of a cereal and legume mix crop with Mark & Bethany as well as Hefin Richards, Rumination and John Falconbridge, Western Seeds, as well as seeing the crop in the field post summer establishment.

Hefin and John will discuss key areas of livestock nutritional demand along with reviewing the suitability of the crop in an arable rotation along with comparing yield, quality and feeding values compared to single variety crops.

Booking is not essential but encouraged for catering purposes.
