The AHDB ‘Livestock and the arable rotation’ guide looks to inspire farmers to work together for mutual benefit. 

The guide covers the extensive opportunities available, including the grazing of arable land, growing crops for silage or hay and arranging muck-for-straw deals. 

Targeted at managers of arable-based systems who are thinking about such opportunities for the first time, the guide includes sections on leys, cover crops, forage crops, maize, outdoor pig production and manures. Key points to consider when making formal agreements are also covered. 

The guide provides top-line information and signposts to numerous resources that provide the detail necessary to forge specific agreements.
