Two updates that may be of interest:
First, thanks to Andrew for this link to the current “British Wildlife”.
There is often discussion on the possible benefits (nutritional or pharmaceutical) to livestock from the the variety of wild plants in herb-rich grassland, either from direct grazing or from winter feed of hay or haylage. There has been a review of evidence in the available literature carried out by Cath Shellswell of Plantlife.
Second, the PONT conference, “Farming, Nature and Food – Grazing for the Future” is coming up on 7 -8 February at the Dragon Hotel, The Kingsway, Swansea.
