A virtual farm walk took place on James King’s farm in Ballymena, Co Antrim, last week.

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

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

James was joined by Dairylink Ireland adviser Aidan Cushnahan and Niall McCarron from Lakeland Dairies, as well as Jack Kennedy and Peter McCann from the Irish Farmers Journal.
