Irish Examiner - Farming - - DAIRY SECTOR -

Ex­am­ples of suc­cess­ful dairy f a r m p a r t n e r s h i p s a re i n cluded in “Guide­lines to form­ing a Farm Part­ner­ship”, a new book­let on reg­is­tered farm part­ner­ships pro­duced by the Farm Man­age­ment Unit in Tea­gasc on Col­lab­o­ra­tive Farm­ing Op­tions. Farm part­ner­ships pro­vide a sus­tain­able frame­work where farm­ers work to­gether to im­prove work-life bal­ance, by pro­vid­ing more labour, and shar­ing of work be­tween part­ners. This also in­creases the skills avail­able. There is also the pos­si­bil­ity to im­prove farm fam­ily fi­nan­cial vi­a­bil­ity through ef­fi­cien­cies and the op­por­tu­nity to in­crease scale sus­tain­ably. The part­ner­ships play a key role in fam­ily farm suc­ces­sion, even for farm­ers with­out an iden­ti­fied farm­ing suc­ces­sor.
