Olin Greenan is a Monaghan migrant to New Zealand whom we have heard from several times on the Farmshow. In a phone call recorded last week he told us about the milking season just gone by, the milk price prospects for next season and his family’s hopes for the future in New Zealand. (The full interview is below).
Michael Bergin joined us from the Conahy Vintage Club in Kilkenny to tell us about an upcoming event “The Man Who Put The World On Wheels”, a visual talk on the life and times of Henry Ford, presented by George Conn.

Matt met with Michael Diskin of Teagasc recently to discuss the work being done in relation to efficiency, in this case in the sheep sector.
