The Better Grass Program
This all started in 1997 when we were asked to visit a dairy farm in Cheshire and the farmer told us that when he put his cows into a particular field they would not eat the grass and would break out, so he stopped putting them in that field. He said that he then cuts the grass and takes it to the cows in the yard so they HAVE to eat it!
We were amazed at this and tasted the grass ourselves - it was HORRIBLE - and didn’t blame the cows at all for not wanting to eat it. Cutting a long story short, we analysed the soil and grass then implemented a programme of soil mineral balancing. That field is now one of the best on the farm producing high quality grass and the animals love it.
