‘This field was established as a barley undersow in spring 2015 with a seed rate of just 10kg/acre. After the barley was combined, the grass was used to finish lambs and then ewes were tupped on it before it was shut off around the new year. Lambed ewes were turned on to it in March 2016 at up to 6 ewes/acre with no other feed before it was shut off in mid April. It was cut twice, with the first cut producing 12ME 75D silage to feed to the ewes in the run up to lambing.’
