Conservation management for your livestock businessGrassland leaflet_170_240

On any farm, the steps in this leaflet complement best practice in soil management, nutrient management (fertilisers and manures) and pesticide use to improve the environment. There is no ‘blueprint’ for how to deliver improved environmental management on lowland livestock farms. It needs a tailored approach based on your own soils, landscape and environmental features. Addressing local environmental priorities can improve the benefits of these measures further, e.g. focussing on local populations of declining species or checking if you are within a priority water catchment.
