Beef Guide - Grow more grass

Welcome to our Beef Guide - designed to help farmers grow more grass

Beef Guide

Beef farmers looking to grow more grass in 2018 can get their hands on our free guide to grassland management.


Crammed full of useful advice, the Barenbrug Beef Guide 2018 is now available to download free or order a printed copy to be posted out.


Developed by the agricultural team, the guide contains practical hints and tips to help beef farmers manage their grassland more efficiently to maximise yields and profitability.  


It looks at the science of good grass and includes facts and figures about animal and plant physiology. It features information on good grazing management including when to graze grass and how to perfect pasture pressure. There are also sections on looking after leys long-term, and successful soil management and seed selection. 

The Beef Guide is the third document in a series of information booklets that the business is producing to help UK farmers. It follows on from the 2017 guides to Brassicas and Forage Crops, and a separate Dairy Guide. 


David Linton, Regional Sales Manager for Barenbrug UK in Northern Ireland, said: “Regardless of breed, all UK beef farmers have one thing in common; the need to provide their animals with top quality grass to eat. 


"Costing far less than manufactured animal feed, well-managed grassland can supply almost all of the energy and protein requirements of a beef herd – but deciding what type of grass to grow and how best to manage it can be difficult.


"Winter is the perfect time to take stock and plan how you are going to manage your grass in the year ahead. With so many forage grass options now available, our guide is designed to help farmers make the right choices as they work to achieve their grassland goals.”
