Why Measure Grass?

The potential to achieve high levels of productivity from grazed grass gives Irish farmers a major
competitive advantage over many of our European and global counterparts.
Existing research clearly show that farms that grow more grass have lower costs and higher profits.
On average, the cost of producing 1 kg of live weight gain or 1 kg of milk solids from grazed grass is
80% to 85% less when compared with an intensive concentrate-based system.
