The University of Gloucestershire is offering a funded PhD on optimal grazing choices.
The project aims to identify optimal grazing management and advance best practice in communicating complex science on soil health and sustainability and investigate how to communicate these results and translate them into behaviour change. Collaboration with farmer partners interested in improving the sustainability of their farms, Cynidr Consulting and Natural Resources Wales means the project will remain focussed on addressing a key concern of the farming sector. The project will examine whether grazing regime and intensity lead to differences in soil biology and carbon stocks, how farmers perceive the impacts of grazing choices on soil health and carbon stocks, and best communication approaches to elicit change.
