Grazing and hedgerow for livestock case study, April 2017

This case study follows sheep farmers Nic and Paul Renison who are planting new hedges and trees to:

  • provide shelter for livestock
  • support their mob grazing system.

Cannerheugh Farm, situated on the edge of the Pennines in Cumbria, can be cold and exposed.

The Renison’s have introduced mob grazing (rotational grazing) to help improve productivity and reduce lamb mortality.
