The THBC would like to thank all those at both Brynmawr Farm and Cow Hall in Shropshire who put together such a wonderful day for the Club meeting and summer herd visit on 22nd June.
The day began with a Club meeting in the straw-insulated building at Brynmawr Farm, a care farm and visitor centre who use their cattle, sheep and organic farmland to educate and provide opportunities for a wide variety of people.
Following a walk round the Brynmawr cattle and a tasty lunch, the group moved on to see another organically-managed herd at Cow Hall, where we were introduced to some Soil Association trials using diverse leys of legumes and grasses to improve silage yields and quality, as well as for use within arable rotations.
