The Farm Show

Glanbia Farm Show – 3/8/2017

First tonight we had an interview with John Comer, President of the Irish Creamery Milk Suppliers Association about current events, especially affecting ICMSA members.

We heard from Brendan Smyth about a competition being held in Virginia, Co. Cavan on August 23rd to find the Diageo Bailey’s Irish Champion cow. Entry criteria are available HERE and forms for this competition are available HERE or by calling Brendan Smyth ++ 353 (0)87 2560952. Follow the conversation on Twitter @BaileysCow #DiageoBaileysCow.

Paudie Brennan of the Ballyragget local area committee of Glanbia joined us in studio to talk about the centenary of the Ballyraggett Co-Op and details of the upcoming celebrations. The conversation gave us an insight to the Ballyragget Co-op and the reasons for their creation and their role in rural life. The celebrations take place on Friday August 11th at 12 noon in the Creamery building in Ballyragget.

George Candler joined us for the weekly Mart Report from Kilkenny Mart.
