Encouraging pastoral livestock farmers to make better use of their grassland Denmark, New Zealand, Canafe and Australia

“Personally, the experience gave me confidence, contacts and credibility. I brought back many new ideas that I have been able to communicate through the industry. The Trehane award opened a lot of doors abroad and at home.”

Sara set out to find ways to encourage UK farmers to turn more of their grass into milk and meat.

‘I have been able to set up a scheme similar to one I saw in Canada and BGS Grazing Partners was launched in 2009. It equips proficient grassland farmers so they can mentor others who are less confident – so they too can reap the financial rewards of better grassland utilisation.’
