The article focuses on the benefit of an overhaul of improvement of grass management at Jeremy Barlow's dairy farm in Cheshire, England to forage costs. Barlow says improving sward management through reseeding, weed control, and fertiliser use has helped ease the switch to organic production. An integrated approach to grassland management is being promoted by the Grassland Group by bringing experts to work together for the benefit of the farmer.
