Management notes


In this week’s beef management notes, Adam Woods looks at summer scour in calves and also takes a look at the upcoming BDGP and BEAM deadlines.


Aidan Brennan looks at the level of meal and fertiliser being used on dairy farms and suggests there are ways to reduce it for the summer.


Grass growth rates are significantly exceeding stock demand, while swards are heading out faster with a lower leaf to stem ratio and creating challenges in maintaining quality grazing, writes Darren Carty.


Crops have moved quickly through heading and into flowering, making it time for final fungicides on most crops, writes Andy Doyle.
