A partner in your farming business
The profitability of dairy, beef and sheep farm systems is intrinsically linked to grass production and utilisation. Reseeding levels in Ireland are low with less than 2% of the total grassland area reseeded annually*. Grass is one of the core profit-producing assets on your farm. To ensure your farm has a competitive advantage in milk, beef or lamb production, continued investment in improved grassland production and management practices may be required.
