Irish Independent - Farming - - NEWS -

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.”
