The Farm Show

Glanbia Farm Show – 16/11/2017

First tonight we heard about fascinating research undertaken by the animal feed company Devenish into the enrichment of chicken and eggs with Omega 3. Dr. Paddy Wall, Professor Of Public Health at University College Dublin, spoke to Matt about this research and its potential for human health.

We then caught up with national ploughing champion Eamonn Treacy. Our colleague Edwina Grace spoke with him as he prepared to compete in the world ploughing championships in Kenya.

Mark Slattery, livestock adviser with Teagasc, spoke to Matt about an upcoming seminar being held in Mullinavat on Wednesday, November 22nd at 7:30.

We heard then from Billy Costelloe, MD of the Kildare based company Green Energy, who promote the widespread use of biomass for gas production.

We had our weekly Farm Diary sponsored by Tullow Mart and George Candler joined us for this week’s Mart Report from Kilkenny.
