Grassland award for Limerick pair
LIMERICK dairy farmers John and Olivia MacNamara have been named Grassland Farmers of the Year.
The Knockainey pair were recognised for achieving high levels of grass utilisation in a sustainable manner.
Teagasc’s Liam Herlihy said: “2018 has taught us how important grass production is to our beef, sheep and dairy enterprises.
“It gives us our comparative advantage in ruminant-based production systems. This competition showcases the top farmers in the country who are using best practice in grassland management and the latest research.”
