THE BORDERS AND NORTHUMBERLAND’S PRINCIPAL AGENTS FOR SEASONAL GRASS LETS.

GRASS PARKS 2020

Standard Temporary Grazing Contracts normally extend from mid

March until the end of October for cattle and the end of November

for sheep. However invariably contracts are tailor made to suit

the owners requirements: sheep only or cattle only; restrictions

to reflect and comply with Stewardship Schemes; whether a few of

the owner’s horses can continue to be grazed; a daily looking

service or a restricted looking service or unlooked; etc, etc. It

must be born in mind that the more restrictions placed the less

attractive the Grass Park will be.

Should you have Grazing which you intend to let for this year only or for

the next few years, talk to the Border Livestock team.

****************************************************************

The letting of seasonal grazings has proved to be a constantly enlarging part of our business. Since the advent of the Single Farm Payment it has become imperative that the owner knows and has references for their prospective grazier. Thus they do not compromise the Good Agricultural and Environmental Condition (GAEC) element of their SFP.
We have pioneered a Written Tender method of Seasonal Grass Park Lets. Model contracts have been written into which the client’s particular needs are accommodated. These areas include the period required to be grazed; whether the proprietor intends to offer a looking service or not; whether sheep and/or cattle are grazed; any environmental restrictions or exclusions; whether the proprietor wants to retain grazing for a few horses etc, etc.
The Parks are then advertised in local and national press and on our web-site and tenders are then invited. Comprehensive details and tender forms are published on this web page where prospective takers can download then visit and view the Parks. The lettings take place on the first and second Wednesdays in March. The proprietor is informed on his let day who and what has been tendered for their fields and then has the opportunity to select from the offers who he wishes to be his grazier. By this method we can maximize the publicity for your grass but unlike an Auction, the owner can select his grazier.
