Hi All,
The Central Scotland Smallholders Association organised Land management course at Oatridge College is on Sat 19th May and I have attached the programe below in case anyone else still wants to come along. All you wanted to know about grass and fields but were too scared to ask. Fee is 35 for the day for members of the CSSA, and joining the CSSA is quite cheap and could be done on the day.

                 9.00 to 9.30am Welcome, Registration, tea, coffee and biscuits
                 9.30am             Grazing management,
                                          Calculating Livestock units,
                                          Grazing systems: effective use of grazing area
                   Improvement techniques
                                          Weed control options & legal requirements
                 12 to 1pm         Lunch

         1pm                   Soil structure
                   Soil testing and analysis

this would be an excellent course for smallholders and intending smallholders   rather than have the approach its green it must be grass  and skills to improve grassland for your benefit and your livestocks benefit :farmer:
