Feeding your herd this spring/summer
Making the most of your pasture

Choosing the right supplements for your system
Ian Williams, Pioneer Brand Products, will talk about using supplements in your feed budget, when and how to feed them, and getting the best economic return from them. He will also outline the steps to making high quality pasture silage, and the best use of maize silage crops.
