Watch the virtual farm walk from James King’s farm in Ballymena, Co Antrim.

James joined the Dairylink Ireland programme in September 2018.

He manages 195 Holstein cows in a predominantly autumn-calving system.

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

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

Dairylink Ireland is a farm development programme supported by Lakeland Dairies, MSD Animal Health, CAFRE, AFBI, Teagasc and the Irish Farmers Journal.
