Is that organic farming rules?

We're heading towards a time when it is assumed farms are using LESS slurry & possibly clover. ATM though the regulation intention is to reduce fertiliser rather than increase stock.

Interesting concept. Maybe new science could help but it's the same as tillage farmers only allowed import up to 170kg organic N

So should organic farms be allowed carry more stock than conventional?

Confirming that you're actually stocked higher than the majority, which you have accused of willy waving for asking questions 🙄

Good morning on the day Suzanna realises that questions on stocking rates is "the lads" discussing the most profitable number of animals per acre on a given grazing system, and like most other small farms she is stocked to the hilt

Slurry/fym doesn't matter. Reality is you have a stocking rate above average & I know you buy feed as I see it in your videos. Reality is at my estimation of 200kg N/Ha equivalent (I added it up wrong first time) you are effectively at a derogation stocking rate

Thought derogation was about water quality

Just realised I added it up wrong 🙄. At 1.2 it's 15LU total, at .8 it's 13.8 ..... so that's either 200 or 185kgN/Ha

Stocking rate 48sheep*0.2=9.6; 3 alpacas*0.6?=1.8; 3 horses *1.2=3.6. That's 16LU on 12 acres. At 65kg N/LU that's 187kg/ha. Do you export slurry to stay out of derogation Suzanna? How much P is in all the feed/straw you buy?
