About this course
Limited to a maximum of 20 delegates, this course will be a mix of class-room and on-farm discussion based learning. The course will include visits to three local dairy farms: two all-year housed, and one summer grazing unit. On Monday evening, there will be a tour around the new Grosvenor Dairy Farm owned by the Duke of Westminster. This 1200 cow high-welfare high-production unit incorporates many innovative design ideas and the design team and herd manager will participate in our discussions.
