James runs 195 Holstein cows in a predominantly autumn calving system.

Topics covered during the event will include plans for getting cows out to grass, improving soil fertility, nutrient management plans and managing grass throughout the grazing season.

Speakers at the event include host farmer James King, Dairylink Ireland adviser Aidan Cushnahan and Niall McCarron from Lakeland Dairies.

The event will be broadcast on the Irish Farmers Journal website on Wednesday 10 March at 8pm. The free webinar will also be available to watch anytime afterwards.
