Please note Grassland Management Courses will not be running for 2022. If you wish to register your interest for the course which we hope to run in 2023, you can do so below.
Delivered by the Irish Farmers Journal, the 10-day Grassland Management programmes are delivered at multiple locations nationwide over the growing season with one onsite training day per month. Each day includes a grass walk followed by analysis of the grass wedge on PastureBase with specialised topics relevant to the time of the year. The course is both practical and theory based and includes an introduction to grass, grass measuring software, grass quality and measuring, surplus and deficits, reseeding, rotations and closing paddocks and increasing profitability through utilizing more grass. Year long advanced courses and three-day courses are held in May and August and facilitate participants to brush up on their seasonal grass management knowledge and skills.
