Horse paddocks often resemble tightly clipped lawns, offering little nutritional value to the animals and offering no benefits to the soil or wildlife.
PFLA member and scientist Dr Radka Gromnicova supplies 100% beef and lamb to customers through a meat box scheme. While researching the regenerative farming practiced by her farmer suppliers, Radka wondered whether tall-grass grazing would work for her two horses
In this webinar, hear how using small areas bounded by electric fence and daily moves has transformed the pastures. Radka no longer needs to buy horse feed and offers much less hay in winter. Muddy gateways and poached areas are a thing of the past and the fields do not burn out in hot summers. Manure is not picked up, fertilising the ground naturally. Putting a five-week rotation in place means the risk of worm infections is nil.
Radka will explain exactly how she plans and manages this way of grazing and describe the effects this has had on her pocket, the horses, the soil and wildlife.
