Grass+ worksheet 3 - average farm cover

Published 28 August 12

As a general rule the average farm cover needs to be between entry level and target residudal figures. If using 2800kg/DM and 1500kg/DM respectively this equates to a farma verage of 2150kg/DM. Seasonal changes in rate of grass growth will need to be taken account of and these figures ajusted accordingly.

Section 4 of Grass+ covers how to make an assessment so average farm cover can be calculated.
