Grassland UK Tickets in Strong Demand

Tickets for this year’s Grassland UK which takes place adjacent to the Royal Bath & West Showground on Thursday 7th May 2015 are now on sale, with visitors able to save £3 on adult tickets by booking in advance.

Held on a working farm in Somerset, Grassland UK covers the full range of forage production, from seeds to feeds, with machinery demonstrations, a technical advice area, seminars, silage clamp demonstrations and trade stands from all sectors of the industry.

The one-day triennial event attracts more than 8000 visitors from across the UK and beyond, showcasing a vast array of machinery demonstrations over the 100-acre site. “Visitors are able to see the latest equipment in action, learn about new grass varieties and technology, and speak to experts on any related topic,” says Head of Shows Alan Lyons.

“Grassland UK really is a one-stop shop for anything to do with forage production. Whether you’re interested in grass establishment, harvesting, baling, ensiling or feeding, it is one of the most important dates in a livestock producer’s diary.”

Agrii has reseeded the site in preparation for the event, with Origin Fertiliser providing the nutritional requirements. “We’re very proud to be sponsoring Grassland UK again, as it really does cover every aspect of livestock farmers’ interests,” says Brendan Paul, Agrii’s seed manager. “We look forward to inviting visitors onto our stand to see our demonstrations and discuss how we’re bringing the advanced tools currently used in arable farming to the livestock sector.”

The packed seminar programme, sponsored by the British Grassland Society, DairyCo and Eblex, will feature leading speakers on topics including CAP reform, weed control, precision farming and growing high protein forages. “The seminars on land drainage and alleviating soil compaction are sure to be particularly topical following last year’s devastating floods on the Somerset Levels,” adds Mr Lyons.

Muck and slurry demonstrations will also take place throughout the day, with more than 140 trade stands showcasing everything from seeds and fertiliser to mowers, balers, tedders, livestock handling and feeding equipment.

Visitors can earn four BASIS CPD points for attending the event.
